Buffalo Sabres vs Calgary Flames 10/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Buffalo Sabres will go against the Calgary Flames in NHL action in Scotiabank Saddledome, AB, CAN, on Thursday, October 20, 2022, at 9:30 PM ET.


The Buffalo Sabres defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-1 to kick off their 2022–23 season. The Sabres went on the road last Tuesday and shocked the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 as underdogs after losing 4-3 to the Florida Panthers at home.


Four players scored, including Rasmus Dahlin of the defense, who already scored three goals, one assist, and a plus-five net rating this season. Eric Comrie made 46 saves in a difficult contest against the Oilers’ explosive attack.


In six years, they did not win more than 33 matches. Buffalo arguably lacks talent everywhere, but Don Granato will attempt to remedy that in his second full season as the Sabres’ head coach.


In Buffalo’s first three games in 2022–23, wingers Victor Olofsson and Alex Tuch collaborated for four goals and an assist.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Buffalo’s last 5 matches. 
  • The Buffalo Sabres are 7-2 SU in their last 9 matches. 
  • The Sabres are 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches against the Calgary Flames.

Buffalo Sabres vs Calgary Flames Predictions 10/20/2022


The Vegas Golden Knights were defeated 3-2 at home by the Calgary Flames on Tuesday. They outshot the Golden Knights 40-21 as they overcame a two-goal deficit.


Mikael Backlund scored his second goal of the season with 4:29 remaining in the third period to lift his side over Vegas. Elias Lindholm and Tyler Toffoli both successfully utilized a power play in the second period.


With his 19 saves against Vegas, Jakob Markstrom improved to 2-0-0 in the short season. In Calgary’s season-opening victory over the defending NHL champion Colorado Avalanche, he made 22 saves, while Dan Vladar allowed three goals on 29 shots against the Edmonton Oilers in a 4-3 win.


Markstrom, a 32-year-old goaltender, is anticipated to defend the net against the Sabres on Thursday. In 2021–22, Markstrom was 1-0-1 against Buffalo with a 0.49 GAA and a .984 save percentage.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Calgary’s last 6 matches against Buffalo. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Flames’ last 5 matches at home. 
  • The Calgary Flames are 8-3 SU in their last 11 matches at home against Buffalo.

Buffalo Sabres vs Calgary Flames. The NHL pick for this game is the Calgary Flames. I’m picking Calgary to beat the puck line because the Flames should shut down Buffalo in a favorable home game after giving up eight goals in three victories over Colorado, Edmonton, and Vegas.


It is doubtful that the Sabres’ chances of pulling off another upset against the Flames, who allow just 25.0 shots per game after they just shocked Edmonton despite 48 shots on goal.


In his previous two starts against the Sabres, Jakob Markstrom only gave up one goal. The Flames won eight of their past 11 matchups with the Eastern Conference, while Buffalo is 3-8 in those 11 away games.


The Flames will win to a predicted score of 4-1.
