The Philadelphia Flyers looked way to comfortable in their 5-3 win over the Devils, as they had New Jersey playing on their heels the entire game and then put them away with three goals in the third period.

The Flyers have been money across the board, especially in the favorite role. I'll lay the somewhat reasonable price.
