The Philadelphia Flyers welcome the Florida Panthers to the Wells Fargo Center in Tuesday NHL action.

The Florida Panthers have not won a game yet and have one point through three contests after a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Saturday. Florida saw Jonathan Huberdeau and Vincent Trocheck score in the second with Trocheck adding an assist. James Reimer fell to 0-2-1 with three goals allowed on 30 shots as the Panthers dropped their third straight by a single goal.

Vancouver received their offense from Elias Pattersson, Antoine Roussel and Bo Horvat. Sven Baertschi logged a pair of helpers Anders Nilsson picked up the win for the Canucks with 24 stops.

The Philadelphia Flyers saw their opportunity for back to back wins go by the wayside in a 1-0 loss at the hands of the visiting Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday. Philadelphia had allowed 17 goals in the last three games and an outstanding effort in the nets went for naught.

The Golden Knights are were a record setting squad in their first season of existence and are hoping Saturday’s victory is the beginning of a long hot streak. Cody Eakin scored the only goal for Vegas with 1:25 remaining in the third. Brian Elliott absorbed the loss for the Flyers with 20 saves while Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 for the Golden Knights.

Under is 2-0-2 in Panthers last 4 road games and Panthers are 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and Panthers are 10-2 in their last 12 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game. Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games and Flyers are 0-5 in their last 5 home games and Flyers are 0-4 in their last 4 when their opponent scores 2 goals or less in their previous game. Home team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings and Panthers are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings in Philadelphia. 

My first thought was under because the Flyers can’t score, but then again their defense has generally been bad too…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
