David Pastrnak leads Boston with 48 goals, Brad Marchand has 58 assists and Patrice Bergeron has 200 shots on goal. Defensively, the Boston Bruins are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 84 percent of their opponents power plays. Tuukka Rask has given up 85 goals on 1,153 shots faced and Jaroslav Halak has allowed 73 goals on 905 shots. The Boston Bruins have allowed two or less goals in 13 of their last 19 games.
The Philadelphia Flyers look for a win to build on their nine-game winning streak. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 21.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Travis Konecny leads Philadelphia with 24 goals, Jakub Voracek has 44 assists and Claude Giroux has 193 shots on goal.

The Bruins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia and 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The home team is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings. The underdog is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 3-1-2 in the last 6 meetings in Philadelphia.
The Boston Bruins and the cheap price is always worth a look given their rock solid defense and consistent play no matter where they play. The problem is the Philadelphia Flyers have been a wrecking ball these last few weeks and are a team I'm not stepping in front of right now. The Flyers have quickly emerged as a legit cup contender during this stretch, and they've also won four straight against the Bruins. With the cheap price, there's no way I can bet agains the Flyers in their current form.
