Lightning vs. Flyers Prediction

I’m on the over here. This matchup features two teams with solid goaltending that hasn’t really stepped up to the plate in the last couple of games and two teams with solid offenses that are more than capable of scoring goals. Even if this ends up being one-sided one way or another, I think there’s more than enough here to get us up and over this total when all is said and done. Give me the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
