Money Line: -115.00 Calgary (Home)
Here are my keys to the game:
1. The Flames D - The main reason to the Flames success over their last five games has been a stingy defense. They've allowed only 10 goals over that span while conceding 26.4 shots per game. I expect them to keep it tight in front of Karri Ramo who will tend the net tonight.
2. Road Woes - The Red Wings are coming straight from Edmonton where two last minute goals secured a 4-2 win last night. Playing on the road on back-to-back nights is never easy though, and Detroit has dropped all of its last six on the road against teams with a winning home record. The Flames fit the bill here with a record of 11-7-2 in Calgary for the season.
3. X-Factor - Jiri Hudler is leading the Flames with 38 points despite being goal-less over his last eight games. He's been productive in other ways though, setting up eight goals over his last seven.
