Calgary Flames vs. Boston Bruins / NHL – After five games played, both teams are in the upper part of their conference and are in a good mood for the next match. The home team is welcoming this match after the victory in the last round over Colorado, while the Bruins have mastered Detroit in their hall. The players of Calgary and Boston play very attractive and score a lot of goals, which guarantees another interesting and efficient duel.
Calgary Flames vs. Boston Bruins begins 18.10.2018 at 03:30 CET
The Flames did not open the new season very well and they lost to Vancouver with 5:2 in the first round. But in the next two games they improved their game and achieved two wins in a row. In the next round they played again with the Canucks, but this time they celebrated with a score of 7:4, after which they defeated Nashville as guests with a convincing 0:3. After two wins in a row, they played a very effective match in St. Louis Blues and lost with 5:3. Their third match as guests was against Colorado and they lost with 2:0 after two minutes. It was then that they experienced another defeat in a row, but the guest hockey players did not think so.
After that they played much better and by the end of the regular part they managed to equalize. After only a minute of the overtime, Gaudreau has scored a third goal for Flames and brought his team a great victory. Calgary had problems with scoring goals last season, so they boosted the team with some prominent players such as James Neal, Elias Lindholm and Dereka Ryan who have already shown great strength at the first matches this summer.
The Bruins did not change the team much during the summer break, and therefore we expect them to be at the top of the Eastern Conference this season. They brought John Moore from New Jersey Devil and Chris Wagner from Anaheim. Currently they are in third place and in five games played they made four wins and one defeat. Similar to Flames, the Bruins have at the opening of the championship experienced a defeat with 7:0 by Washington Capitals. It was a real shock to all fans of this club, but obviously this result did not disturb Boston’s game.
In the next four matches, they had the same number of victories. First they were better than Buffalo as guests and then they defeated Ottawa at home. The third consecutive victory happened against Edmonton in their hall, when they defeated Detroit with 8:2. In the first five games, Boston has recorded 22 goals and they are the third most successful team at their conference. The last three games played were at home and we will see whether they will continue this positive series in Calgary.
Calgary Flames vs. Boston Bruins PICK
Calgary has played one match at home against Vancouver in the previous season. They played great in this match and celebrated a victory. However, they are now welcoming a team which has made the same number of victories in three guest matches and it will surely be a difficult task. The Bruins have played great in the previous games and for that reason would give a small advantage to the guests in this match.
