The Philadelphia Flyers could use a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 2.4 goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power plays. Wayne Simmonds leads Philly with 18 goals, Claude Giroux has 28 assists and Brayden Schenn has 102 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 78.7 percent of their power play chances. Steve Mason has allowed 85 goals on 1,006 shots faced and Michal Neuvirth has given up 43 goals on 638 shots. Mason has allowed eight goals in his last three games.
The Ducks are 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Flyers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 15-37 in their last 52 vs. a team with a losing record. The Ducks are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings overall.
The Ducks aren't good when playing on the end of a back to back and the Flyers could use a nice home win to kind of stop the bleeding. I'll side with the home team for the even money.
