Flyers vs. Blues Prediction

I’m on the Flyers here. The Flyers continue to play solid hockey on the road and while the Blues have done a lot of their best work on home ice, I’m not ready to jump on board with them fully just yet. The goal-scoring for St. Louis is still pretty inconsistent, and Philadelphia has had some strong showings between the pipes in recent games. I think this one is going to be a great watch, but I think the Flyers get it done in the end.
