The New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia Flyers meet Thursday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The New Jersey Devils need a win after losing six of their last seven games. The New Jersey Devils are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 15.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Blake Coleman leads New Jersey with 19 goals, Nikita Gusev has 22 assists and P.K. Subban has 128 shots on goal. Defensively, the New Jersey Devils are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 79.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Louis Domingue has given up 34 goals on 297 shots faced and Mackenzie Blackwood has allowed 104 goals on 1,079 shots. The New Jersey Devils have allowed three or more goals in seven straight games.
The Philadelphia Flyers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Travis Konecny leads Philadelphia with 17 goals, Sean Couturier has 33 assists and Claude Giroux has 152 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 81 percent of their opponents power plays. Brian Elliott has given up 65 goals on 670 shots faced and Carter Hart has allowed 74 goals on 781 shots. The Philadelphia Flyers have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last 10 games.
The Devils are 22-49 in their last 71 road games, 17-43 in their last 60 Thursday games and 1-6 in their last 7 overall. The Flyers are 9-2 in their last 11 home games, 13-4 in their last 17 vs. Eastern Conference and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Devils last 7 overall. The under is 5-2-1 in Flyers last 8 home games. The under is 12-3-2 in the last 17 meetings in Philadelphia.
The New Jersey Devils are falling apart rather quickly and have been awful on the defensive end during this lengthy losing stretch. The Philadelphia Flyers have caught fire these last couple of weeks and have played their best hockey at home. The Philadelphia Flyers have won the last three meetings against the Devils by a combined score of 14-6. There's really only one way to go in this contest. Give me the Flyers at home and the PL for added value.
