Travis Konecny leads Philadelphia with three goals, Ivan Provorov has two assists and Oskar Lindblom has 10 shots on goal.

The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three goals in three of their first four games.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a third home victory to build on their impressive 5-1 start to the NHL season. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 4.2 goals per game and are scoring on 41.2 percent of their power play opportunities. James Neal leads Edmonton with eight goals, Leon Draisaitl has eight assists and Connor McDavid has 17 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 94.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 10 goals on 120 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed five goals on 58 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or less goals in five of their first six games.
The Flyers are 1-10 in their last 11 games as an underdog, 0-6 in their last 6 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-5 in their last 5 road games. The Oilers are 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite, 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Eastern Conference and 6-1 in their last 7 overall. The under is 4-0 in Flyers last 4 overall. The under is 5-1 in Oilers last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Flyers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Edmonton. The home team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The home team has won eight of the last 10 meetings between the Philadelphia Flyers and Edmonton Oilers. The Flyers have also had issues playing on the end of a back to back and their offense has gone cold in their last two games. The Edmonton Oilers have been one of the more impressive teams in the league up to this point and have an offense that's firing on all cylinders at the moment. I'll gladly take the Oilers and the cheap price at home.
