The Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes meet Saturday at the PNC Arena.

The Philadelphia Flyers look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Flyers are averaging 2.6 goals and have scored 10 goals in their last three games. The Philadelphia Flyers have four power play goals in their last four games and have won four of their last five when scoring at least three goals. Wayne Simmonds leads Philly with 28 goals, Claude Giroux has 46 assists and Jakub Voracek has 212 shots on goal. Defensively, the Flyers are allowing 2.7 goals and haven’t allowed a power play goal in six of their last 10 games. Steve Mason has allowed 100 goals on 1,381 shots faced and Ray Emery has given up 76 goals on 706 shots.

The Carolina Hurricanes look for a win after losing four of their last six games. The Hurricanes are averaging 2.2 goals and have scored four goals in their last three games. The Carolina Hurricanes have one power play goal in their last four games and have won three straight when scoring at least three goals. Eric Staal leads Carolina with 22 goals, Justin Faulk has 33 assists and Jeff Skinner has 220 shots on goal. Defensively, the Hurricanes are allowing 2.7 goals and haven’t allowed a power play goal in five of their last six games. Anton Khudobin has allowed 84 goals on 849 shots faced and Cam Ward has given up 113 goals on 1,247 shots.

The Flyers are 14-38 in their last 52 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win. The Hurricanes are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 2-7 in their last 9 home games. The Flyers are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Carolina and 39-18-6 in the last 63 meetings overall.

The Flyers haven't won back-to-back games in what feels like forever. I like the Canes on their home ice for the cheap chalk. 

Pick:
Carolina Hurricanes -113
