The Devils are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 7-3 in their last 10 Saturday games. The Flyers are 1-5 in their last 6 Saturday games and 16-37 in their last 53 vs. a team with a losing record. The Devils are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia and 14-5 in the last 19 meetings overall.
Neither of these teams have been lighting the world on fire, but the Devils are playing better hockey at the moment. New Jersey has also beaten the Flyers in 14 of the last 19 meetings. That has to count for something. Give me the road team.
