Flyers vs. Penguins Prediction

I’m on the Flyers here. I get that the Penguins are at home in this one, but Philadelphia’s played their best hockey on the road all year long and the Penguins are still too inconsistent for me to feel good about laying this kind of price with them. It’s a rivalry matchup and these teams don’t like each other in the slightest, so in what I figure to be a close game, I think it’s worth taking a stab at the plus money here.
