With more than 20 years in the media, including almost a decade chasing the NHL’s Calgary Flames around the continent for the Calgary Sun, he has his fingers on the pulse on professional hockey. The former newspaper man turned online analyst has contributed to Bleacher Report, The Hockey News, The Fourth Period Magazine, and makes regular appearances on Flames Nation for the Nation Network north of the border.

The Flames are confident they haven't played their best game yet. The Avs are happy to have a split series and home-ice advantage as the Western Conference's biggest underdog. 

Will depth win out over a superstar line led by Nathan MacKinnon that has dominated at times over the first two games despite a low goal output?

The Flames are the better team, without question, but the outcome is very much in doubt. 

But if the first two games are any indication, the goaltending is going to be better than anticipated and the true nature of playoff hockey is back, with goals much harder to come by. 

So go with the under for Game 3, which should be a tight-checking battle.
