The Coach's NHL Saturday Night SURE SHOT
(NHL) Calgary vs. Vancouver, 01/10/2015 5:00 PM, Score: 1 - 0
Money Line: -175.00 Vancouver (Home)
Result: Loss
The Vancouver Canucks can set themselves up for a season-series sweep of the Calgary Flames with another win tonight. They're catching the Flames at good time, with the visitors coming off three consecutive losses and I think the home team is well worth the price here.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Goaltending - Calgary's in trouble here, with Karri Ramo on injured reserves and Jonas Hiller losing three straight games posting a 4.16 GAA and starting last night. The alternative is giving 23 year old Joni Ortio his season debut. The Nucks have not confirmed their goaltender, but two days rest before and after this game we should see Ryan Miller between the pipes. He's 10-4-0 behind a 2.33 GAA at home for the season allowing only seven goals over his last three starts at Rogers Arena.

2. Road Woes - The Flames have won only one of their last six on the road. They're coming off six consecutive games in their own building and it could take some time to switch mindset to play on the road.

3. X-Factor - Henrik Sedin has one goal and two assists against the Flames this season and 15 points over the last 11 meetings.

Selection: This is a play on the Vancouver Canucks (8*)
