NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Calgary Flames at Boston Bruins

Calgary at Boston -230 O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Over

My clients and I have cashed a multitude overs involving the Calgary Flames since the All-Star break and that is a trend worth riding tonight as the Flames face the Boston Bruins. This is going to sound like a broken record but Calgary is struggling defensively and its goaltending regardless of whether it is Jonas Hiller or Joni Ortio isn’t at a high enough level to bail them out of their defensive shortcomings. Things are even worse now in terms of goal prevention after trading defenseman Kris Russell at the deadline yesterday. That leaves them without one of their best defensemen who is always in good position, a shot blocking machine, along with being a very strong penalty killer. Calgary has allowed 42 goals in its last 10 games. The Flames also have the suspension to Dennis Wideman in effect and Ladislav Smid is out due to injury -- bad news for an already struggling defensive unit which now has to rely on Deryk Engelland and a lot of youth and inexperience to eat up more minutes. They simply aren't up to the task and have been exposed defensively for a lack of positioning and speed in recent games. Once you get past Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie, Calgary’s blue line becomes paper thin. Boston should be able to take advantage of it. Calgary has still been able to score goals of late though as they have scored seven goals in their last two games combined against Philadelphia and Ottawa. The Bruins have not been the sharp defensive team this season as in years past and have allowed 10 goals in their last two home games against Columbus and Tampa Bay. All three meetings between the Flames and Bruins since the start of last season have soared over the total with 7, 7 and 9 total goals scored. I expect a similar result tonight.
