March 17th 2015 and here at Pucking Hockey we have a NHL hockey prediction between the St. Louis Blues and Calgary Flames. Who will win tonight in this match-up?
The young surging Calgary Flames, they have been nearly unstoppable. But if they can find a way to get either Kari Ramo or Jonas Hiller to maintain consistency in net, they will be dangerous in the playoffs. Seems like when Ramo runs out, Hiller steps in then it’s a rinse and repeat cycle.
Hiller starts tonight in net. Hiller allowed three goals on 28 shots in the Flames dominating 6-3 win over the Maple Laffs last Friday. He has stopped 77 of the last 82 shots (.939 SV%) that he has faced. In his first start against St. Louis, he allowed four goals on 39 shots in a 4-1 loss.
However he’s 7-1-0 with a 2.42 GAA when facing St. Louis in a home role.
NHL Hockey Prediction
With Hiller having an outstanding record at home when facing the Blues and the Flames needing every point to stay in the playoff hunt, we are backing the Flames.
