Calgary Flames @ Ottawa Senators Tips


The Calgary Flames take on the Ottawa Senators in an NHL North Division regular season game on Wednesday, March 24. Calgary and Ottawa currently hold down the bottom-two slots in the 7-team North Division table, the Flames at sixth and the Senators seventh. These two teams have played each other six times already this season, with Ottawa 4-2 up.

The Flames and the Senators last played each other on Tuesday, with Ottawa emerging victorious in a tight match 2-1. I’m backing Toronto to turn that trick again, this time by a more convincing score line.

  • Calgary 6th in NHL North Division
  • Calgary 15-18 this season
  • Ottawa 7th in NHL North Division
  • Ottawa 11-23 this season

Head to Head 


The Calgary Flames and the Ottawa Senators have played each other a total of 29 times in the NHL, with Calgary currently edging their head-to-head 15-14. In their most recent 11 meetings encompassing this season plus the two previous, Calgary lead 6-5. These two teams have played each other six times in 2021, with Ottawa leading 4-2. In their most recent encounter on March 23, the Ottawa Senators defeated the Calgary Flames 2-1.

Calgary Flames Form


The Calgary Flames are currently second from bottom of the all Canadian NHL North Division, with 15 wins and 18 defeats from their 33 games for a total of 33 points. While that might sound fairly poor, they are just four points adrift of the Montreal Canadiens in fourth. The North Division has been highly competitive, and even table toppers the Toronto Maple Leafs have sustained 12 defeats already this season.

As recently as the 2018-19 season the Calgary Flames were divisional champions, and there have been signs of late that they may be finding some form. The Flames are actually 5-5 in their last 10 games, although they have lost their last two, most recently on Tuesday (March 23), going down 2-1 against the Ottawa Senators.

Ottawa Senators Form


The Ottawa Senators are currently bottom of the NHL North Division with a record of 11 wins against 23 defeats in 34 games for a total of 25 points.  Ottawa are eight points adrift of sixth placed Calgary whom they defeated on Tuesday. A note of consolation is that of all the bottom placed teams in the NHL right now, the Senators have the most points.

Much of the damage to Ottawa’s season was done early; after defeating current table toppers the Toronto Maple Leafs in their opening game, the Senators promptly lost 13 of their next 14 matches, and have been playing catch-up ever since. From mid-February onward, Ottawa have gone 9-10, defeating Toronto again on March 15 and most recently Downing Calgary 2-1.

Verdict

Because the Calgary Flames and the Ottawa Senators are the bottom-two teams in a highly competitive, all-Canadian division, this should be a close game between two teams who know each other inside out, having already met six times this season.

On Tuesday it was Ottawa who emerged victorious in a tight 2-1 encounter, and I’m backing the Senators to pull off another win on Wednesday, this time by a slightly wider margin. The Ottawa Senators will win this game by two clear goals in a match that will feature six goals in total. Ottawa’s no.1 hitman Drake Batherson is my anytime goalscorer pick.
