Lightning vs. Flyers Prediction

I’m on the Lightning here. The Lightning have had their ups and downs, especially on the road this season where it’s been more down, but the Flyers are also better on the road and have struggled more at home. The Flyers are also struggling mightily as of late, and Tampa Bay’s at least started some momentum with this road trip. They’ve also owned the Flyers in Philadelphia in recent years, winning 8 straight in this building. Give me the Bolts.
