The Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Capital One Arena.
The Philadelphia Flyers look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 21.4 percent of their power play opportunities. James van Riemsdyk leads Philadelphia with seven goals, Claude Giroux has 10 assists and Kevin Hayes has 32 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 70.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 20 goals on 192 shots faced and Brian Elliott has allowed 10 goals on 140 shots.
The Washington Capitals look for a win to snap a three-game losing streak. The Washington Capitals are averaging 3.6 goals per game and are scoring on 37 percent of their power play opportunities. Nicklas Backstrom leads Washington with six goals, John Carlson has seven assists and Alex Ovechkin has 32 shots on goal. Defensively, the Washington Capitals are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 81.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Ilya Samsonov has given up seven goals on 53 shots faced and Vitek Vanecek has allowed 31 goals on 319 shots.
The Flyers are 12-4 in their last 16 road games and 36-17 in their last 53 overall. The Capitals are 5-1 in their last 6 Tuesday games and 6-13 in their last 19 games playing on 1 days rest. The over is 9-4 in Flyers last 13 overall. The over is 8-2 in Capitals last 10 overall. The Flyers are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings. The favorite is 19-7 in the last 26 meetings.
The Washington Capitals are in a bit of a slump right now and it looks like the injuries are starting to catch up to them. The Philadelphia Flyers continue to play solid hockey, have been one of the more profitable teams in the league dating back to last season and just beat the Caps a couple days ago while dropping seven goals. The Flyers have won each of the last five games against the Capitals overall. I'll lay the cheap price with the road team.
