The Devils are 1-5 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 6-2 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record. The Flames are 2-6 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest and 9-4 in their last 13 games following a loss of 3 or more goals. The Devils are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Calgary and 0-5 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Devils have done a great job of beating up on losing comp and are bound to beat the Flames at some point. It might as well come now when Calgary is so tough to figure out with its up-and-down ways. Give me the road team and the small price.
