Flyers vs Canadiens prediction

The Canadiens are coming off a couple of nice wins, but they've had issues stringing together success all year, and they have nothing to play for at this stage. The Flyers are closing in on a playoff spot and games like this are great to pad the points. The Flyers have won the last two games against the Habs, and they've had success on the road, where they're 17-12-7 on the season. You could argue this price should be steeper given where both teams are in the season. I'll lay the juice with the Flyers on the road.
