The Ottawa Senators will travel to Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary Alberta, Canada, in which to match up with the first place team in the Pacific division in the Calgary Flames. The Flames enter this matchup winners of four of their last five outings while also picking up a slim, 2-1 victory over the Senators in their last meeting on February 24th.
Despite being last place within the Atlantic division, the Ottawa Senators have strung together two wins, as of late, well also looking to extend their success versus a tough Flames squad. While the defense has allowed just two goals in the last two games for Ottawa, the offense has been the tip of the spear in their success in posting 8 goals during this time.
Mangus Paarjarvi scored two goals on the night versus the Maple Leafs for the Senators while Cody Ceci along with Brian Gibbons also scored in the contest, as well. In all, Ottawa scored five goals in the second and third periods en route to the much-needed victory.
In their last outing versus the Flames, however, the Senators were able to tie the game at 1-all in the second, after a goal by Brian Tkachuk. Nonetheless, Austin Czarnik sealed the victory for Calgary in the final period as he posted a goal at the 19:19 mark.
The Senators should be credited for their recent success; Yet, they have dropped four of their last five road games entering this matchup. Center Colin White is out for this contest with a neck injury while while Thomas Chabot will be missed on the defensive end as he continues to be out indefinitely with a toe injury.
The Flames had very little problems in disposing of the Columbus Blue Jackets in their last time out as they went up by a 3-1 score to begin the third period. Johnny Gaudreau scored his 35th goal of the season early in the first while Matthew Tkachuk (33) ended the scoring in the final period with a goal at the 19:09 mark.
For the season, Calgary is averaging 3.6 goals-per-game on 32 shots. On the other hand, their defense has also been solid as well in allowing under three goals per game on just 28 shots per game.
In their last outing versus the Senators, the Flames finished the game with 35 shots on goal compared to allowing only 23 for the Senators. In fact, during their four-game home winning streak, Calgary has only allowed opponents to score ten goals during this time.
Center Sean Moynihan along With Sam Bennett are both questionable for this matchup with Ottawa due to an illness along with an upper body injury. Furthermore, Left-winger James Neal is also questionable with a lower-body injury.

Free Ottawa Senators vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
Calgary has simply been on fire lately, as pointed out. Also, they have been very dominant at home as well. With that being the case, look for them to come out with a 5-2 victory in this contest as I strongly believe that the over will be the strong play in the end.
In fact, the over happens to be 3-1-1 in the Flames last 5 home game. Furthermore, Ottawa has really stunk it up on the defensive end in their last six road games as they have allowed 25 goals to their opponents.
