Flyers vs. Bruins Prediction

I’m on the Bruins here. I know the Flyers have a superb puck line record on the road, but I’m starting to have on and off feelings about the Flyers and their goaltending situation. I think the Bruins have the better team across the board, and I just don’t know if the Flyers can pull one off in this game. Boston’s won the last 7 meetings head-to-head, and I think they make it 8 straight here. Give me Boston.
