Chicago was out shot by a total of 33-26 and won 58.1% of the faceoffs in the game. The Chicago Blackhawks are averaging 2.33 goals per game, 3.69 goals against per game, 20.3% on the power play, and 74.4% on the penalty kill. Max Domi has led the Blackhawks with 13 goals, 17 assists, and 95 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for Chicago is Petr Mrazek, who is 4-10-1 this season with a 4.17 goals against average and a .877 save percentage.
The Philadelphia Flyers are 19-19-7 this season after they defeated the Anaheim Ducks by a score of 5-2 in their last game. Philadelphia out shot Anaheim by a total of 39-27 and went 1-5 on the power play in the win. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 2.82 goals per game, 3.20 goals against per game, 16.3% on the power play, and 75.8% on the penalty kill. Travis Konecny has led the Flyers with 24 goals, 24 assists, and 127 shots on goal this season. The projected starting goalie for Philadelphia is Carter Hart, who is 13-13-6 this season with a 3.00 goals against average and a .907 save percentage.
Chicago is 1-6 in their last 7 games against the Metropolitan and 2-6 in their last 8 Thursday games. The under is 6-0 in Chicago’s last 6 road games. Philadelphia is 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 9-4 in their last 13 Thursday games. The over is 6-0 in Philadelphia’s last 6 home games. The home team is 22-5 in these two teams last 27 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams come into this game after winning four of their last five games, but the Flyers will have the home ice advantage in this matchup. Chicago has struggled to score goals this season and is only averaging 2.33 goals per game, while Philadelphia is scoring 2.82 goals per game. With neither team scoring a ton of goals, I like the under here.
