Philadelphia Flyers vs Boston Bruins 01/13/2022 Betting Odds:
While the Bruins have found their winning groove, the Flyers continue to struggle in finding the right formula for wins. Philadelphia has dropped five of its last games and is now dragged down to the sixth spot in the Metropolitan Division stuck at 33 points. Facing the Bruins on the road on Thursday is a tall order for the Flyers given that the team has not played since the 3-2 OT loss to San Jose on Saturday. Almost all of the advantages are with the opposition, making it tougher for Philadelphia to establish a clear game plan against Boston. But aware of the possible repercussions, the Flyers do not have any choice but to come out with their 100% percent effort, otherwise, their bid to stop the bleeding will be nothing but a failure.
Players to watch: C. Giroux C (G 11, A 18, PTS 29), C. Atkinson RW (G 14, A 12, PTS 26), T. Konecny RW (G 5, A 14, PTS 19)
The wait is finally over as Tuukka Rask is set to make his return to the rink Thursday. The prized goaltender’s comeback is a huge boost to an already fine-tuned Bruins squad, who has collected a series of wins since the holiday break. The 34-year-old Rask says he could not wait to rejoin the team he has played his whole career, saying that having a chance to win with the same core of people is the most exciting part of his return. Boston is currently fourth in the Atlantic Division with 42 points in 33 games – seven behind third-placed Toronto Maple Leafs. With the current pace the team is playing in, it would not be surprising if the Bruins are able to surpass the teams above them in the ladder.
Players to watch: B. Marchand LW (G 16, A 20, PTS 36), D. Pastrnak RW (G 13, A 14, PTS 27), P. Bergeron C (G 11, A 15, PTS 26).
