The Pittsburgh Penguins host the Philadelphia Flyers in Saturday NHL action.

The Philadelphia Flyers need a quick change in momentum after dropping six of seven capped off by a 4-3 loss to Ottawa on Tuesday. Philadelphia received scoring from Travis Konecny in the first with Jakub Vorecek and Radko Gudas in the second for a 3-1 lead. Ivan Provorov gave the Flyers two assists and Anthony Stolarz gave up four goals on 24 shots to get the loss.

Brady Tkachuk paced the Ottawa attack with a pair of markers with Thomas Chabot and Matt Duchene also lighting the lamp. Colin White and Mark Stone added two helpers each while Mike McKenna recorded 34 saves to pick up the win for the Senators.

The Pittsburgh Penguins drive for a third straight win was denied I a 6-3 loss at Colorado on Wednesday. Sydney Crosby was the Penguins offense with a hat trick but Tristan Jarry was charged with five goals on 25 shots to get the loss.

The balanced Avalanche offense received scoring from Samuel Girard, Erik Johnson, Colin Wilson, Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Carl Soderberg. MacKinnon also posted three assists and Mikko Rantanen assisted two times while Philipp Grubauer stopped 22 shots to get the win for Colorado.

Over is 7-0 in Flyers last 7 games playing on 3 or more days rest and Flyers are 1-8 in their last 9 vs. Eastern Conference and over is 6-1 in Flyers last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. Under is 4-0-1 in Penguins last 5 following a loss of 3 or more goals and under is 2-0-5 in Penguins last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and under is 3-0-2 in Penguins last 5 vs. Metropolitan. Road team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings and over is 7-1-3 in the last 11 meetings and Flyers are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings. 

I don’t know if the Penguins are about to hit their stride but the team seems to have the Flyers number…

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.
