Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks Pick – NHL March 19, 2022

The Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames meet in the late game on Hockey Night in Canada. This matchup will take place at Rogers Arena in BC.

Calgary is looking to be better tonight on a back-to-back following a 1-0 loss in Calgary as monster favorites versus the Sabres. One of my most important tips for betting on sports betting is maintaining bankroll management.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re on a long winning streak or cold streak, don’t go on betting -430 juice. That could be an easy way to rip up your bankroll and get a migraine.

If you bet the Flames last night and lost, let this be a lesson and learning experience. Look for better bets and more value than paying heavy juice.

The Canucks lost 1-0 to the Detroit Red Wings two nights back at home. It was uncharacteristically poor output from the Canucks’ forwards, but they have an excuse.

Red Wings’ goaltender, Alex Nedeljkovic, put up a wall with 43 saves on 43 shots. After a 6-3 win over the New Jersey Devils a couple of days earlier, the offense was cooled off by Nedeljkovic.

In their last meeting versus the Flames, the Canucks blasted their Western Canadian rivals by a score of 7-1 on February 24. Head below for our free Canucks vs. Flames prediction on March 19, 2022.

Flames vs. Canucks Prediction:

Neither team scored a goal in their most recent outing, but that should change for both teams tonight. There should be much more than a goal for each side.

There wasn’t much that the Canucks could do last night. They had 43 shots and couldn’t beat a wall between the pipes.

Despite the scoreless game, the Canucks scored at least 3 goals in five of their previous six games before last night. Vancouver scored 3.9 goals per game in their previous ten going into tonight.

They won’t have to deal with Jacob Markstrom after he played last night. Dan Vladar is expected to get the nod in the crease. He owns a 2.90 GAA and 0.903 save percentage through 15 games.

They are playing well even though the puck couldn’t find the net last night. The Flames have no excuses for such a terrible performance when it comes to Buffalo.

The Flames recorded just 24 shots in the loss versus the Sabres. They deserved the loss. However, I’d be surprised if the Flames don’t come back firing hard in this one.

Calgary Flames vs. Vancouver Canucks Betting Trends:

  • 5-1 overall in their previous six games versus the Pacific Division
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games as a road favorite
  • OVER is 9-3-3 in their previous 15 games on the road
  • OVER is 7-1-2 in their previous ten games as a betting favorite on the road
  • OVER is 5-1-2 in their previous eight games on a back-to-back
  • 4-1 overall in their previous five games versus the Western Conference
  • 5-2 overall in their previous seven games as an underdog
  • OVER is 6-0 in their previous six games versus the Western Conference
  • OVER is 14-3 in their previous 17 games
  • OVER is 7-0 in their previous seven games after allowing 2 goals or fewer in their previous seven games

The Flames are the second-best team in the NHL, with 35.7 shots per game. What they did last against the Sabres isn’t like them. Overall, the Flames are sixth with 3.4 goals per game.

It could have very well been a look-ahead spot, in the sense that they believed it was a night off before a real challenge versus the Canucks tonight.

With such little effort in that one, the Flames should have energy in the tank at home tonight. This one should result in an offensive game, with the OVER a good option at Rogers Arena.
