NHL Live Betting Odds – Flames vs. Avalanche Game 4 Wednesday!

NHL Live Betting Odds

The Calgary Flames may have won the Pacific Division going away but that does not take away from the fact that they had their share of skeptics and detractors. More specifically Flames goaltender Mike Smith has more than a few doubters in regards to his ability to backstop a team to the Stanley Cup. Smith’s save percentage of .898 in the regular season was considered far below par and a sign that Calgary could be had. With sharp shooting power forward Nathan MacKinnon, the Colorado Avalanche certainly bring the full capability of testing Smith. Indeed, Colorado’s intent is to unleash an Avalanche of attacks on the Flames netminder.
