The Philadelphia Flyers and New Jersey Devils meet Friday in NHL action at the Prudential Center.
The Philadelphia Flyers look for a victory after winning six of their last 10 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 17.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Sean Couturier leads Philadelphia with 25 goals, Claude Giroux has 46 assists and Jakub Voracek has 172 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 76.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 42 goals on 517 shots faced and Carter Hart has allowed 55 goals on 662 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three or more goals in seven of their last nine games.
The New Jersey Devils also need a win after splitting their last 10 games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 18.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Palmieri leads New Jersey with 26 goals, Taylor Hall has 26 assists and Blake Coleman has 160 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 84.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Cory Schneider has given up 45 goals on 441 shots faced and Keith Kinkaid has allowed 129 goals on 1,188 shots. The New Jersey Devils have allowed two or less goals in five of their last 10 games.
The Flyers are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite, 8-3 in their last 11 games as a road favorite and 14-4 in their last 18 overall. The Devils are 21-44 in their last 65 games as a home underdog, 16-36 in their last 52 games as an underdog and 3-7 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 3-0-1 in Flyers last 4 overall. The under is 5-1 in Devils last 6 home games. The Flyers are 16-35-1 in the last 52 meetings in New Jersey and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers are playing better and more consistent hockey at the moment, but there's not a whole lot operating these teams at the end of the day. The New Jersey Devils are rested and have won five of the last eight meetings against the Flyers, which includes the last two victories where they've outscored them by a combined 6-2. I'll take a stab with the plus money and the rest advantage.
