The Flyers are 5-1 in their last 6 road games and 35-17 in their last 52 overall. The Penguins are 152-70 in their last 222 home games and 1-6 in their last 7 games as an underdog.

The home team is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.

The Philadelphia Flyers are a team I've blindly backed a lot dating back to last season and they continue to play solid hockey. The Flyers have also beat up on the Penguins in past meetings. With that said, the Pittsburgh Penguins are playing the better hockey as of late and they remain one of the best home teams in the league over the years. In a near toss up game and with the heap price, I have to side with the Penguins here.
