Odds for Calgary Flames to Win the Stanley Cup

The upstart Calgary Flames have surprised many (including us!) when they not only made the playoffs, but beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 in the opening round. Now, the odds for Calgary to win the Stanley Cup are 10-to-1, which is down from 75-to-1 odds before the season began!

It was the youth of the Calgary Flames that most people thought would be their undoing, and when Calgary failed to close out the series in Game 5, it appeared as though the predictions may come true, because after Calgary fell to an early 3-0 first period deficit in Game 6, only to storm back and win the game 7-4.

Calgary’s top line featuring Calder Trophy finalist Johnny Gaudreau was under scrutiny for their lack of output during most of the series. However, with their backs to the wall, the line came alive and scored 10 combined points in the comeback win, and it was when the team needed it most.

“We were still excited on the bench being down 3-0. We knew we wanted to win. So we did whatever we could and we pushed back. We don’t pack it in. We have good leadership.”

It is clear now the effect Calgary coach Bob Hartley has had on the team, along with former Toronto Maple Leaf Matt Stajan. Stajan was aquired from Toronto as part of the Dion Phaneuf deal and he has found found his groove since Hartley took over as bench boss. Hartley had this to say when asked about the series winning goal against the Canucks.

“Matt Stajan is a reflection of who we are as a team. Hard worker. You look at the winning goal.

That’s the Calgary Flames.

That’s the way we do business.”

Calgary’s next step towards the Cup is a series with Anaheim, which could prove to be a very interesting series because these teams have some history of ‘chippy’ games. Also, Flames goalie Jonas Hiller was will be facing his former team.
