The Boston Bruins are on one of those roles where everything is working, and they have to like their chances here considering they've already beaten the Flyers twice this season. However, the Philadelphia Flyers are a club I've blindly backed a ton dating back to last season and they have yet to stop cashing tickets, especially in the home or underdog role. We're getting the cheaper price with the Flyers and that's simply something I can't turn down. I'm still riding the Flyers bandwagon.
