Flyers vs. Flames Prediction

I’m on the Flyers here. Despite a loss that’s going to happen here and there, the Flyers have still been one of the best road teams in the NHL up to this point in the year. Calgary’s been solid in spots, but they’re inconsistent as well and I just feel that all of the value is with the Flyers here. Give me Philadelphia.
