The Calgary Flames have tied a franchise record by winning 10 straight games, while the Bruins continue to scrape and claw to hold onto their Atlantic division playoff spot.
The Bruins’ Brad Marchand just tied Crosby with 35 goals so far this season, after a hat trick against Vancouver earlier this week. When the Bruins head to Calgary this Wednesday it will be the league’s hottest team versus the league’s hottest scorer.
The Bruins are in the middle of a 3-game western Canadian road trip, having defeated Vancouver Monday night, and heading into Edmonton Thursday night. They started the west coast trip in fine form on Monday with a 6-3 victory over the Canucks.
Brad Marchand picked up a hat-trick, with all 3 goals (1 empty netter) coming in the 3rd period, including the game winner at 12:03. The 3 goals gives Marchand 35 on the year and ties him with Crosby for the league lead.
The Bruins need to play well down the stretch, as they have the Maple Leafs nipping at them for the final Atlantic divisional playoff spot. Right now the Leafs are 4 back but have 2 games in hand.
In the Eastern Conference the difference between a wild card spot and a divisional playoff spot is huge. It is the difference between playing the Washington Capitals or the Ottawa Senators in the first round.
One could make the argument the #2 and #3 seeds in the Atlantic are the easiest route out of the first round.
Wow, the Calgary Flames just keep winning. They tied a franchise record with 10 straight wins on Monday night when they defeated the Pens in a shootout.
Should they defeat the Bruins Wednesday night this Flames club will officially be the hottest the franchise has ever been.
It’s been over a month since the last time the Calgary Flames lost a hockey game. Their last loss was a 5-0 beating at the hands of the Arizona Coyotes on February 13th.
Perhaps the loss to the Coyotes was the wake up call their season needed.
Throughout the course of their win streak the Flames have jumped over both Edmonton and Anaheim in the Pacific division. The possibilities of a potential Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames first round playoff series still very much possible at this point.
2 out of Calgary’s last 4 games on the schedule are against the Ducks.
The two teams, which could easily meet in the first round of the playoffs as well, might be playing for home ice advantage in those two games. As it stands now both teams are tied in the standings but the Flames have more wins.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Bruins are 1-7 in last 8 Wednesday games
- Flames have won 10 straight
- Home team is 12-15-1 in last 18 meetings
- Bruins are 2-6-1 in last 9 meetings in Calgary

While Boston has a lot to play for, and a scoring ace who is putting everything together at the right time, I just don’t see them stopping this epic winning streak by the Flames.
Calgary is a team that is finding a way to win and playing with a lot of passion at the moment.
