Calgary vs Chicago: prediction for the NHL game
The Flames and the Blackhawks lock horns in the National Hockey League on November 24. What to expect from this game? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Calgary Flames had a long away series of seven games, in which they suffered only one defeat in regulation. In the game against Montreal (2:4), goalie Markstrom was unreliable and saved only 88% of the shots. The Flames also lost in overtime to Toronto and Philadelphia with the same score of 1:2. But Calgary won the last three games, crushing Buffalo (5:0), the Islanders (5:2), and Boston (4:0), proving that they are in great form.
The Chicago Blackhawkswere on a winning streak of four games, but then they lost to Edmonton with a score of 2:5. Chicago's goalie Lankinen could save only 84% of the shots. After that game, the Blackhawks traveled to Vancouver, where they defeated the Canucks (1:0), and Fleury, who was tending to the goal, gave a shutout performance, having made a total of 40 saves. Overall, the Hawks are doing well and shouldn't be underestimated.
Chicago scored first in 3 head-to-head games in a row.
In the last 3 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
Although both teams are in good form, Calgary are the favorites here, as the club are playing at home, and they will strive to extend their winning streak here. Chicago often have problems in away games, so we do not doubt the success of the Flames.
