Calgary vs Dallas: prediction for the NHL game
The Flames and the Stars lock horns in the NHL on Saturday night. What to expect from this game? Look out for our prediction below.
Calgary have played two games on the road, showing mixed results. In the first match, the team faced Arizona and suffered an overtime loss (3-4 OT). The Flames created a huge number of scoring chances, but failed to convert most of them. After that, Calgary went on to face Vegas, and this time they showed great performance, crushing the Golden Knights 7-2. Forward Toffoli scored two goals and also gave two assists.
Dallashave been in excellent form for a while, but it seems that now the team has gone into a downturn. The Stars started their current road trip with three consecutive victories, but then they suffered a crushing defeat to Vancouver (2-5). Goalie Murray saved only 73% of the shots faced. The Stars then faced Edmonton and suffered another wide-margin defeat (1-4).
Ставка 1st period: total under 1.5 goals

Ставка 2nd period: Calgary to score first
In 4 head-to-head games out of 6, Calgary scored the first goal in the second period.
Dallas dipped in form and struggle to beat even clear outsiders. Calgary, on the other hand, have been great both at home and away. We expect the Flames to take advantage of their opponents' crisis.
Our prediction - Calgary to win
We doubt the teams will sit back on defense in this match. Both sides play open hockey and score a lot, so we recommend taking the over here.
Second bet - total over 5.5 goals
