The Calgary Flames and the Minnesota Wild meet in NHL action from the Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Minnesota is listed as a -140 home favorite while Calgary is a +120 road underdog. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.

Matchup History

Minnesota’s 3-0 win over Calgary back on March 4th, 2023, made it four straight meetings between these two teams without back-to-back winners.


Calgary is 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. Minnesota is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 5-0 in their last 5 games against the Western Conference while the under is 20-8-1 in their last 29 home games.


I’m backing the Wild here. The Flames got a nice win to snap their losing streak on Monday, but they’re on the back-to-back here against a tough Wild team that plays well at home, and there are still visible defensive issues for Calgary after blowing multiple leads on Monday. I’ll side with Minnesota here as I just don’t see the Flames breaking through on back-to-back nights.
