The Calgary Flames and the Vegas Golden Knights meet in NHL action from the T-Mobile Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Vegas is listed as a -115 home favorite while Calgary are -105 road underdogs. The total for this game is set at 6 goals.


For Calgary, Oliver Kylington is out for the season and Michael Stone is out indefinitely. For Vegas, Keegan Kolesar and Adin Hill are both questionable for this game while Logan Thompson, William Carrier, Nicolas Roy, Laurent Brossoit and Mark Stone are all out indefinitely.

Matchup History

Vegas’ 4-3 OT win back on February 23rd, 2023, made it five straight meetings without back-to-back winners.


Calgary is 3-7 in their last 10 games overall and 2-5 in their last 7 games against the Western Conference while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Vegas is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 8-1 in their last 9 home games while the over is 3-1-1 in their last 5 division games.


I’m backing the Golden Knights here. The Golden Knights are just playing the far more consistent hockey right now, and they’ve also had a ton of success against the Flames having never lost to Calgary at home in their entire existence. The Flames aren’t a team I go looking to back regardless, but this just confirms that. Give me the Golden Knights here.
