The Boston Bruins and the Philadelphia Flyers meet in NHL action from the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday afternoon.
The Boston Bruins will look to build on their 4-2 win over the Washington Capitals in their last matchup. Brad Marchand leads the Flyers in scoring with 47 points including team-highs of 19 goals and 28 assists while Patrice Bergeron has 15 goals and 19 assists with a team-high 125 shots on goal and David Pastrnak isn’t far off with 121 shots on goal with 16 goals and 16 assists this season. David Krejci and Charlie McAvoy each have 21 and 18 assists respectively as well this season. As a team, Boston is averaging 2.8 goals on 32.1 shots with a 24.1% success rate on the power play while allowing 2.5 goals on 27.7 shots with an 87.7% kill rate on the PK this season.
The Philadelphia Flyers will also be looking to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to the New York Islanders in their last matchup. Jakub Voracek leads the Flyers in scoring with 32 points including a team-high 25 assists while James van Riemsdyk and Claude Giroux each have 31 points with JVR logging 13 goals and 18 assists with a team-high 96 shots on goal while Giroux has 20 assists. Joel Farabee also leads Philly in goals with 14 markers this season. As a team, Philadelphia is averaging 3 goals per game on 29.9 shots per game with a 19.2% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.6 goals on 28.8 shots with a 72.8% success rate on the PK this season.
Boston is 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 2-9 in their last 11 games following a win while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home favorite. Philadelphia is 1-4 in their last 5 games overall and 3-13 in their last 16 games as an underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.
We narrowly missed out on the under in the last matchup, but it’s the perils of the empty net goal in today’s game. With that said, I’m going to go back to the well and take the under again. The game played true to form as it was a hard-hitting and physical game and I think we see more of the same in the rematch. Give me the under in this spot.
