Chicago Blackhawks vs Calgary Flames 02/15/2020 Betting Odds:
Chicago Blackhawks have ultimately plummeted the Central Division standings after losing five straight. Now that they are eight points behind a spot in the postseason, they will have to double their effort to conquer a visibly daunting task at hand. They will try to avoid getting swept with two more games left on the road before heading back home in Chicago.
Players to watch: Patrick Kane (GP 57, G 25, A 44, PTS 69), Jonathan Toews (GP 57, G 15, A 31, PTS 46), Dominik Kubalik (GP 55, G 22, A 11, PTS 33).
The Blackhawks are just two wins and three points out of the Vancouver Canucks, who are the best team in the Pacific (31-21-5). In fact, Calgary showed the team is not intimidated by Vancouver, imposing its dominance last Feb. 8 for 6-2 victory that snapped a prior three-game slump. There really is no more fooling around for the Flames as they will enter this Saturday’s match coming off a 6-0 rampage of Anaheim on Thursday.
Players to watch: Matthew Tkachuk (GP 58, G 19, A 28, PTS 47), Johnny Gaudreau (GP 59, G 14, A 33, PTS 47), Elias Lindholm (GP 59, G 25, A 21, PTS 46).
Chicago Blackhawks vs Calgary Flames Betting Predictions

Flames Betting Picks
This will be a back-and-forth affair as both teams are geared up on their respective missions. But the Flames, having the better tools on ice, will be rescued from the siege the Blackhawks will attempt to pull off, prolonging the latter’s agony on the slump.
Score Prediction: Blackhawks 3, Flames 4.
