Calgary Flames vs Ottawa Senators 03/01/2021 Betting Odds:
The Calgary Flames absorbed a 6-1 stunner during the first game of the scheduled three-game series against the Senators on Thursday. With the lopsided loss serving as a huge wake-up call, the team responded well two days later and split the affair at one apiece. It was a significant morale boost for the team heading into the third consecutive game against Ottawa, now the mission is to establish an elusive winning streak. Since Feb. 9-11, Calgary has failed to build a string of victories and that resulted in an impeded progress while they continued to catch up in the division ladder. They are currently placed fifth in the North but remain in contention with still lots of games to be played. After Sunday’s matchup, the Flames will take a three-day off before taking on the Senators for the fourth straight time, this time in Calgary.
Players to watch: J. Gaudreau LW (G 9, A 11, PTS 20), E. Lindholm C (G 6, A 13, PTS 19), M. Tkachuk LW (G 7, A 9, PTS 16).
Two days after shocking the Flames with a rout on Thursday, the Senators were immediately served with a reality check. Ottawa took a punch in the gut as they fell to a 6-3 beating at the hands of Calgary on Saturday, ending a once-searing winning streak at three. Coach D.J. Smith implied that his team might have been too high with the erstwhile surge that they forgot to keep their stance up. It’s quite an unfortunate turn of events for the Senators. Just when they thought that they were finally about to take off after a sluggish season start, another roadblock was hit. The underdog tag placed on them was rather expected given their 4-6-1 home record. Their overall record is likewise demoralizing, but Smith still expects his team to come out with pride as they intend to pull off another upset.
Players to watch: B. Tkachuk LW (G 9, A 7, PTS 16), D. Batherson RW (G 7, A 8, PTS 15), T. Chabot D (G 3, A 11, PTS 14).
