The Philadelphia Flyers and the New Jersey Devils meet in NHL action from the Prudential Center on Thursday night.

The Philadelphia Flyers come into this game looking to build on a 5-3 win over the Devils last time out. Jakub Voracek, Travis Konecny and Kevin Hayes all have 8 points with Voracek logging a team-high 7 assists while Konecny has 5 goals with 3 assists and Hayes has 3 goals with 5 helpers. James van Riemsdyk has 8 points with 5 goals and a pair of helpers while Claude Giroux has 6 assists. Nolan Patrick, Ivan Provorov and Joel Farabee each have 2 goals and 3 assists on the year. Carter Hart’s played in 5 games for Philadelphia, going 2-2 with a 4.18 GAA while Brian Elliott is 2-0 with a 1.98 GAA this season.

The New Jersey Devils will try to bounce back after their loss to the Flyers last time out. Jack Hughes leads the Devils in scoring with 7 points coming on 3 goals and 4 assists while Ty Smith has 6 points with a team-high 5 assists on defense. Myles Wood has 5 points with 3 goals and 2 assists and Kyle Palmieri has 3 assists for the Devils this season. MacKenzie Blackwood and Scott Wedgewood have each made 3 starts, with Wedgewood going 1-2 with a shutout and a 2.70 GAA while Blackwood has a pair of wins and a 1.90 GAA this season.

Philadelphia is 23-10 in their last 33 games overall and 10-4 in their last 14 road games while the over is 6-1-1 in their last 8 games playing on 1 day rest. New Jersey is 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 23-58 in their last 81 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 12-5 in their last 17 games overall. The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams in New Jersey.

I get the Flyers being favored at home, but the problem is that I just don’t think that the Flyers should be this heavily favored against New Jersey. Sure, the Devils dropped the last game but I was going into that game assuming MacKenzie Blackwood would start and not Scott Wedgewood. I just think with Blackwood in goal we’re getting plus money with the better goaltender so I’ll side with New Jersey in a bounce back spot here.
