Joonas Korpisalo vs. Jacob Markstrom

Joonas Korpisalo has faced a heavy workload this season, starting in 23 of Ottawa’s 34 games. He owns a lackluster 3.61 GAA along with a .889 save percentage and 7-12 record. Korpisalo has shown flashes of strong play at times, like when he made 37 saves in Ottawa’s upset win over the Avalanche last week. However, he’s also been pulled multiple times and allows over 3 goals per contest on average. If Calgary’s forwards can apply pressure, Korpisalo could crack. Still, he’s capable of stealing a game if he’s seeing the puck cleanly.

Jacob Markstrom hasn’t performed up to his usual standards this year, recording a mediocre 2.65 GAA and .908 save percentage. Normally one of the league’s top netminders, the 33-year old has already given up 4+ goals eight times after doing so just nine times all last season. Fatigue could be catching up to Markstrom, who started an NHL-high 63 games in 2021-22. Still, he boasts the superior career track record over Korpisalo along with a stout Flames defense in front of him. When locked in, Markstrom remains difficult to solve.

Senators’ Key Player: Tim Stutzle

Tim Stutzle has been an instrumental member of the Senators this season, scoring 7 goals and 27 assists while logging an average 21:45 time on ice per game. Stutzle’s playmaking abilities and vision on the ice make him a significant threat; however, his 7.1% shooting percentage suggests more precision is required when finishing shots. Unfortunately for them though, performance metrics for their team has been somewhat dismal; their recent form was mixed: going 1-3 over their last 5 games against the spread; this inconsistency could play out even further against opponents than usual in future match-ups!

Flames’ Key Player: Blake Coleman

Blake Coleman stands out for Calgary Flames with 15 goals and 15 assists, an impressive plus/minus rating of 18 and average ice time of 16:26 per game proving his effectiveness both offensively and defensively. Coleman’s 15.5% shooting percentage will prove key against Senators defense, and their recent record against the spread in road games (10-12) speaks volumes about their resilience which could give them an edge over them.

NHL Betting Odds: TBD, Over/Under: TBD

The current betting odds for the game are still to be determined. However, given the teams’ recent forms and statistical analysis, the Flames might emerge as the favorites, especially considering their home advantage and more consistent performance.

For those involved in the best online betting, the Flames might be a safer bet, though the Senators cannot be discounted entirely given their potential for upsets.

The over/under bet looks promising, especially with both teams showing trends towards high-scoring games. Prop bets on key players like Coleman for goal-scoring could be interesting options.
