Money Line: -120 Tampa Bay

The Calgary Flames host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night. Calgary is coming off a 4-1 loss to Philadelphia, while Tampa Bay beat Vancouver their last time out, 4-2.
Fading the Flames has been a very profitable endeavor for us this season, as the team is at their lowest point in years as they look to rebuild following the loss of two foundational players. The team has lost nearly two thirds of their home games, and there's no reason to expect a better effort from them on this night.
The Flames are mired in a terrible streak in which they've lost seven of their last eight games, having scored only once in their last three.
Meanwhile, the Lightning have won six of their last eight games, including four in a row on the road, yet we get them at a very favorable price in a major mismatch.
Additionally, Lightning center Valtteri Filppula has been white hot, recording multi-point games in five of the team's last seven games, racking up 12 points in the last eight games.
The Lightning are 4-1 in their last five trips to Calgary, and 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the teams overall.
Take Tampa Bay.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
