Winnipeg Jets vs Philadelphia Flyers prediction

The Philadelphia Flyers have had defensive issues as of late and the losses have been getting out of control. The Flyers have also been hit or miss at home this season, so it's hard to trust them in spots like this. The Winnipeg Jets have been road warriors all season long, and that's with this recent stretch of losses. The Jets are just the easier team to trust, and they have the offensive horses to give this struggling Flyers team fits. I'll side with the Jets on the road.
