The Philadelphia Flyers and Florida Panthers meet Tuesday in NHL action at the BB&T Center.
The Philadelphia Flyers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 20.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Oskar Lindblom leads Philadelphia with nine goals, Travis Konecny has 11 assists and Jakub Voracek has 39 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.8 goals per game and are killing 85.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 25 goals on 279 shots faced and Carter Hart has allowed 29 goals on 299 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed two or less goals in six of their last seven games.
The Florida Panthers look for a win after winning six of their last 10 games. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Evgenii Dadonov leads Florida with 10 goals, Aleksander Barkov has 19 assists and Mike Hoffman has 58 shots on goal. Defensively, the Florida Panthers are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 81.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 54 goals on 458 shots faced and Sam Montembeault has allowed 15 goals on 154 shots. The Florida Panthers have allowed three or more goals in five of their last six games.
The Flyers are 4-9 in their last 13 games as a road underdog, 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 4-12 in their last 16 games as an underdog. The Panthers are 6-2 in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference, 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win and 3-9 in their last 12 Tuesday games. The under is 6-1 in Flyers last 7 overall. The over is 16-4-1 in Panthers last 21 home games. The Flyers are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings in Florida and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and the home team is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
The Florida Panthers are starting to heat up with wins in six of their last 10 tries and that's without Bobrovsky finding his groove in net. Usually a slow starter, it's only a matter of time before Bobrovsky becomes a more reliable goalie and the Panthers become a more balanced and dangerous team. The Florida Panthers are a team I'm keeping a close eye on and will be baking them often as long as we continue to see progress defensively. The Panthers have also won four of the last five meetings against the Flyers. I'll lay the cheap price with the home team.
