Trends for the Hurricanes:

4-1 in their last five at home. 10-3 vs the Western Conference in their last 13 games.

Trends for the Flames:

4-1 in their last five against the Hurricanes. 7-1 in their last eight Eastern Conference matchups. 9-1 against the Metro Division in their last ten meetings against that division.

Pick Analysis:

The NHL Prediction Model gives the Carolina Hurricanes the edge over Calgary at 58.60%. Statistically, Carolina has the advantage. As for trends, the Flames have the slight edge. However, I like the pick from the NHL Prediction Model for this contest. Hurricanes continue their recent dominance over the West.

Take the Carolina Hurricanes -135
