The Calgary Flames will be looking to snap a four-game losing streak when they host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night as +109 home underdogs on the NHL odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Calgary has been idle since last Thursday's 4-1 loss to the visiting Ottawa Senators, which marked the team's third defeat in as many home dates going into Tuesday night's matchup at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The Flames' recent offensive struggles continued in last week's date with a Senators team that had played just one game in over three weeks. Calgary spotted the Senators a 3-0 lead, and has scored just two total goals before the third period over its past three contests. Overall, the Flames have potted just seven total goals during their current four-game slide.

Calgary has also struggled on defence, with each of its four recent defeats coming by three or more goals.

Fresh off a crushing 9-2 rout of the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night, the Panthers kick off a five-game road trip in Calgary as -120 favourites at sports betting sites. The Panthers have filled the net during an 8-0-1 run that includes a 6-2 home win over Calgary on January 4. Florida scored six goals per game over that stretch, fueling a 9-0 run for the OVER. The Panthers have also averaged 4.67 goals over their past three trips to Calgary, but have posted just one win in their last five road dates with the Flames.

Elsewhere on the Tuesday NHL odds, the Winnipeg Jets continue an eight-game road trip in Washington set as +120 underdogs. The Senators look to extend their current win streak to three games as they host the Buffalo Sabres as opening -133 chalk. The Vancouver Canucks hit the ice for their third road game in four days as they visit the Nashville Predators as +141 underdogs, and the Montreal Canadiens visit the slumping Dallas Stars as a +223 wager.

The Jets travel to Washington after improving to 3-1-0 on their current eight-game road trip with a 3-0 win in Detroit last Thursday. Overall, Winnipeg has claimed victory in four of its last five contests, and has earned the win in five of its last seven road dates. The Capitals are listed as chalk for the contest despite losing five of their past six games, capped by Sunday's 4-2 loss to the visiting Canucks.

The Senators return home after posting back-to-back wins in Calgary and Edmonton. Ottawa has also claimed victory in two of its last three home dates, with those wins coming against powerhouse opponents Tampa Bay and Colorado.
