Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 85.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 35 goals on 411 shots faced and Carter Hart has allowed 44 goals on 479 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three or more goals in five of their last six games.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 15.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Mark Scheifele leads Winnipeg with 14 goals, Patrik Laine has 21 assists and Blake Wheeler has 83 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 77.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 55 goals on 792 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 27 goals on 250 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 12 games.
The Flyers are 3-7 in their last 10 vs. Western Conference, 1-4 in their last 5 vs. a team with a winning record and 2-7 in their last 9 games playing on 0 days rest. The Jets are 4-0 in their last 4 home games, 27-8 in their last 35 Sunday games and 19-7 in their last 26 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 5-1 in Flyers last 6 games playing on 0 days rest. The under is 10-2-1 in Jets last 13 home games. The Flyers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in Winnipeg and 41-18-2 in the last 61 meetings. The home team is 12-2 in the last 14 meetings. The under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings in Winnipeg and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers are having some defensive issues as of late and they've had little to no recent success on the end of back to backs. The Winnipeg Jets have played their best recent hockey on their home ice, and it's the home team that's won eight of the last nine meetings between the Flyers and Jets. The road team hasn't won a game in this series since November of 2015. I'll lay the reasonable price with the Jets at home.
