The Flyers are 19-45 in their last 64 road games and 1-5 in their last 6 overall. The Devils are 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 6-2 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record. The Flyers are 18-38-4 in the last 60 meetings in New Jersey and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Devils are in far better form than the Flyers right now, and they've pretty much owned Philly when playing in New Jersey over the years. Not to metion the Flyers don't win often on the road to begin with. I'll take the cheap price and the home team.
