Anaheim Ducks vs Calgary Flames predictions

Face-off: 2200 ET, 03/12/2021

Venue: Honda Center

Anaheim and Calgary both head into this clash in fine spirits following back-to-back victories but the Ducks are favoured by the set-up.

Home advantage and an extra day’s rest may just prove the key factors in how a close encounter ultimately swings at the Honda Center.

We like 2.05 for the hosts on the money line to spearhead our Anaheim Ducks vs Calgary Flames predictions.

Anaheim Ducks Odds

Anaheim built on a 5-4 overtime win versus Los Angeles by edging out Vegas 6-5 at this venue on Wednesday.

Six different Ducks netted against the Golden Knights while Trevor Zegras and Sonny Milano each registered three assists.

Dallas Eakins has steered his team to third place in the Pacific division on 29 points and no side in the Western Conference has more home wins than the nine they have managed.

“Our fans here are incredible,” Eakins told the club website. “It is so loud down on that bench.

“I think they have had a massive effect on our home record here. Without them last year, go have a look at what our home record was. This year, with them, it’s like day and night.”

This should be another entertaining contest, so NHL odds.

Calgary Flames Odds

Calgary are leading the way in the Western Pacific pool on 33 points after a 2-1 defeat of Pittsburgh in overtime and a 3-2 success in Los Angeles.

Andrew Mangiapane struck his 15th goal on the road this year as the Flames overcame an early deficit to shade the Kings at Staples Center.

However, they did put an awful lot into last night’s clash with head coach Darryl Sutter’s former club.

Sutter admitted his current players were hanging on in the final period and there has to be a fear of the fatigue factor coming into play here.

A run of six wins in seven, with no more than two goals conceded in each of those victories, is impressive but draining.

Anaheim rank third in terms of goals scored in the closing stanza, so they are well equipped to take advantage if Calgary do tire.

Let’s finish off our NHL predictions for this game by going with the Ducks to win the third period at 2.7.
