Pick

The Flyers are coming off of a bad loss to San Jose, which was the Sharks first win of the season, but they will get Carter Hart back for this game. Hart is one of the better goalies in the league, so that will be a huge help for Philadelphia. Anaheim has won six of their last seven games and has been able to score a good amount of goals during that stretch. The Ducks have impressed me after a slow start to the season and even though the Flyers have Hart back, I like the Ducks at home here.
