Calgary Flames vs. Toronto Maple Leafs: Odds, predictions, injuries, how to watch

The Toronto Maple Leafs were unable to stop the Edmonton Oilers stretching their win streak to 11 on Tuesday, and they face another team on a successful run when they head south to take on the Calgary Flames on Thursday.

Calgary don't boast the star quality of the Oilers, but they have run up a sequence of four straight wins to put themselves just outside the playoff places in the Pacific Division.

Flames vs. Maple Leafs Predictions

Calgary Flames to win +110

It took Auston Matthews just 27 seconds to put Toronto in front against Edmonton, and the Leafs led 2-0 15 minutes into the second period. But for the third time in four games they blew a lead of at least two goals as the Oilers surged back to win 4-2.

The Flames are on a hot streak, winning four straight and scoring 17 regulation-time goals in that stretch while they've also won seven of their last nine games and five of their last six at the Saddledome.

Calgary overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Arizona in OT on Tuesday to open a six-game home stand and they can ride their confidence to secure two more points against the Leafs.

Yegor Sharangovich over 0.5 points -120

Flames winger Yegor Sharangovich scored his sixth goal in four games when potting the overtime winner against Arizona on Tuesday and it may pay to stick with the hot hand.

The Belarusian plays in all situations, netting on the power-play, shorthanded and even-strength for his hat-trick in Arizona a week ago, and he should get plenty of chances against a shaky Leafs defense,

Over 6.5 goals -120

Three of the last four meetings between these teams saw at least seven regulation-time goals scored and recent performances suggest this should be a high-scoring encounter. There were six goals in the Leafs' trip to Edmonton despite the score being 1-0 after half an hour's play, while the Flames have netted six by themselves in two of their last four.

Ilya Samsonov is expected in the Toronto net with a mediocre 3.88 goals-against average, while Calgary's first-choice starter Jacob Markstrom missed the Arizona game with a lower-body injury.
