The Minnesota Wild and Philadelphia Flyers face off on Thursday in an NHL showdown at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. 

Wild Coming Off Big Win

The Wild comes into this game with a 3-2-1 record overall and they are coming off a big victory in the last game. The Wild scored seven goals against the Edmonton Oilers and that was enough to secure the three goal victory. Ryan Hartman had a big game scoring three goals and adding two assists. Kirill Kaprizov didn’t score any goals, but he did have three assists and three shots on goal. The Wild are averaging 4.17 goals while their defense is giving up 4.16 goals per game. The offense is ranked 4th while the defense is ranked 330th. They need better goaltending here.

The Flyers still have a winning record, but they have lost two games in a row and each of the games have been by only a goal. In the last game against the Vegas Golden Knights, the Flyers scored two goals, but they gave up two goals late and ended up losing. The Flyers this  season are averaging 3.0 goals while their defense is giving up 2.67 goals per game. The offense is ranked 14th  while the pitching is ranked 8th.

  • The 'Over 1.5 Goals Period 1' market has hit in seven of the Flyers' last eight night games.

Shane’s Free Pick

This total is too low. The Wild have scored plenty but they have proven far too often so far this season that the defense isn’t good enough.The Flyers offense hasn’t been exactly elite, but they are going to go over their season average of 3.0 goals and that is going to be the difference as this game is going to be higher scoring. This game will have eight or nine goals scored in it. Back the over.
