San Jose definitely shocked some folks, myself included, by upending the Rangers, but it’s really hard to look past how well the Flyers are playing right now. I won’t lie, I didn’t have very high hopes for them coming into the year as I thought the Flyers were starting the rebuild, and maybe it’ll show down the road, but right now I think you simply have to ride the hot hand until it stops paying off. We’re also getting a reasonable price simply because the Flyers are on the back-to-back, but I don’t see it bothering them here, especially with San Jose on a back-to-back as well. Give me Philadelphia.
