The Senators are 8-18 in their last 26 road games and 2-5 in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference. The Flyers are 5-1 in their last 6 home games and 5-16 in their last 21 games playing on 2 days rest. The home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The Flyers have really found their groove the last couple of weeks, and they have to keep winning in order to clinch a playoff spot. I like the home and desprate team with the way they're playing.
