Flames at Sharks projected goalies

Jacob Markstrom (9-8-4, 2.88 GAA, .893 SV%) vs James Reimer (6-8-3, 2.86 GAA, .907 SV%, 1 SO)

Markstrom allowed just 2 goals on 26 shots in the front end of the 2-game set in San Jose Sunday. It was his first victory since Nov. 21 at the Philadelphia Flyers. He’s allowed 3 or fewer goals in 7 of his past 8 outings, but offensive support has been a problem — he’s received just 13 goals of support in his last 7 starts.

Reimer allowed 2 goals on 41 shots in a 3-2 shootout loss at the Los Angeles Kings Saturday. He just returned from injury on Dec. 13, and he is 1-0-1 with a 1.92 GAA and .937 SV% in 2 starts after being on the shelf for 18 days due to a lower-body ailment.

Flames at Sharks picks and predictions


Sharks 4, Flames 3


The SHARKS (+160) are worth a roll of the dice at plus money as a moderate underdog.

It’s difficult to beat teams in back-to-back games, especially in their place. Despite Calgary’s win last time out, San Jose is still 12-5 in the past 17 meetings overall.

Puck line/Against the spread

The SHARKS +1.5 (-170) aren’t priced out of line if you’d like a little insurance and just can’t fathom playing them on the money line. San Jose has covered the puck line in 2 of the past 3 games as an underdog while going a respectable 9-6 on the puck line in the past 15 as an underdog.


OVER 6.5 (+100) is the lean at even money.

The Over has cashed in 4 of the past 5 games overall for the Flames, including Sunday’s outing.
