The Anaheim Ducks and Calgary Flames meet Monday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Anaheim Ducks need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 14.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Adam Henrique leads Anaheim with 18 goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 25 assists and Rickard Rakell has 141 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 77.3 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 125 goals on 1,280 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed 47 goals on 515 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or more goals in five of their last 10 games.

The Calgary Flames need a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The Calgary Flames are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 20.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Elias Lindholm leads Calgary with 27 goals, Johnny Gaudreau has 35 assists and Sean Monahan has 146 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 81.9 percent of their opponents power plays. David Rittich has given up 122 goals on 1,319 shots faced and Cam Talbot has allowed 51 goals on 633 shots. The Calgary Flames have allowed three or more goals in eight of their last 11 games.

The Ducks are 42-17 in the last 59 meetings. The home team is 58-21 in the last 79 meetings. The favorite is 46-21 in the last 67 meetings. The under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Calgary and 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.

The Anaheim Ducks are on the end of a back to back and have been one of those teams that's had a hard time stringing wins together. The same can be said for the Calgary Flames as of late, but they have the rest edge with this being a quick turnaround for the Ducks, and they just beat Anaheim 6-0 on the road a couple of days ago. In fact, the Flames have won the first two meetings against the Ducks this season by a combined score of 8-1. I'll lay the juice with the Flames at home.
