Few could have imagined that Calgary would agonize with lowly Dallas for so long in the first round of the playoffs. The Flames were a top-three favorite to win the Stanley Cup, and the Stars were only beaten in the seventh game of the series (3:2, overtime). Nevertheless, Darryl Sutter's team pulled it off, and now they should abstract away from this series with the Stars and move on. After all, Calgary looked highly potent in the regular season and even seemed to be playing with a margin.
Edmonton, too, was expected to beat Los Angeles in the first round of the playoffs. But the Oilers also tickled their fans' nerves - everything in this series was decided in the last game, which Jay Woodcroft's team took in a shutout (2:0). It should be noted that in the second and third games, Edmonton defeated the Kings (6:0 and 8:2), and many had already buried them early, but here Los Angeles should be given credit - they won the next two.
Expert Betting Tips
We think Calgary will win the first game of the series. For the Flames, the opening game is more important because they'll be playing at home, and it's a shame to start with a loss to a major opponent in front of their fans. Edmonton still has a ways to go, so we think the home team will be the more motivated to win this game.
- Calgary is the favorite.
- Four or fewer goals have been scored in each of the last four games at Calgary's home arena.
- In the last five home matches, Calgary has scored in the second period.
Just in case, we suggest betting on the Calgary victory including overtime and the shootout to secure this matchup. Darryl Sutter's team will probably clinch the win right at the end of regulation time, but they shouldn't expect an easy walk.
