Pick

Philadelphia was able to get a win to open the season and they have a very good goaltender in Carter Hart. On the other side, Ottawa lost to Carolina and surrendered 42 shots in the process. The Senators were tied in the third period of that game, but couldn’t do enough late in the third period. Ottawa should be pretty good this season, but they face a very good goalie here. I am going to take a chance on the Flyers here, as a nice road underdog.
