Edmonton vs Calgary: Will the hosts interrupt the streak?
Edmonton - Calgary. NHL prediction (March 7, 2021)
There will be a meeting between "Edmonton" and "Calgary" in the framework of the NHL championship on March 7, for which our website has prepared a forecast.
"Edmonton" are in third place in the Northern Division with 28 points, so they have a good chance of reaching the playoffs this season. The team recently developed a streak of up to five wins, but have never been successful on their ice against "Toronto" on their ice and in each case have lost with a large score.
So, the "Oilmen" lost two matches to "Leaves" (0:3 and 0:4), and they were defeated with a score of 1:6 in the final confrontation. Note that in fights with other rivals, Dave Tippett's squad did not have any problems with the implementation of chances, and his players consistently opened the defense more than two times.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Calgary" are one of the most volatile clubs in the division and almost always alternate between victories and defeats. The series of matches against "Ottawa" turned out to be very controversial. Let's remind that "Flames" lost in two meetings out of four, but the last word still remained with them, as they got victory with a score of 7:3.
The main problem of the team is that it does not use its chances well, and in return consistently concedes about three goals per game. Fortunately, Jakob Markström returned to duty and, most likely, will play in the upcoming match at the gate. By the way, more recently it became known that the management had removed the head coach from the work, and Darryl Sutter took his place.
- "Edmonton" have won five of their eight games.
- The previous two matches between the teams ended in favor of the hosts.
- "Calgary" have lost three out of five games.
"Calgary" did not quite successfully play a series of matches with "Ottawa", and in general it looks not the best on the road. On top of that, there have been changes on the coaching bridge, which means that there will be changes in the game of "Flames". "Edmonton" has previously easily dealt with the rival, so we think it will not be difficult for him to succeed again.
Our prediction is "Edmonton's" victory with 2.23 on 1xbet.
