The Canadiens are 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 6-20 in their last 26 overall. The Flyers are 14-39 in their last 53 vs. a team with a losing record and 4-13 in their last 17 Tuesday games. The Canadiens are 1-11 in the last 12 meetings in Philadelphia.
The Canadiens just can't get things going and a road game in Philly may not help turn things around. The Flyers have owned the Canadiens over the years when playing at the Wells Fargo Center. In a toss up game, give me the Flyers at home.
