NHL Online Betting Odds:
The Flyers enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 21-23-6 record that grants them 48 points on the season. That 48 point tally ranks Philly penultimate in the Metropolitan Division, so it’s looking like that lengthy win streak isn’t doing much for the club. Right now the 3rd seeded Washington Capitals have 60 on the season, so Philly will need an incredibly long win streak to bridge that gap. Will they be able to pick another win tonight? Well this evening’s NHL online betting odds are banking on the Bruins to snap the Flyers win streak. And since Philly is 4-6 in their last 10 against Boston, it makes sense for the odds to lean in that fashion. Furthermore, Philadelphia pales in comparison to Boston in stats. Right now the Burins rank 18th in scoring and 4th in defense. On the other hand are the Flyers, who rank 22nd in scoring and a measly 28th in defense.
Players to Watch: Claude Giroux (14 G, 38 A, 52 PTS.), Jakub Voracek (11 G, 29 A, 40 PTS.), and Sean Couturier (19 G, 21 A, 40 PTS.).
The Bruins zip into this Thursday night matchup sporting a 27-17-6 record that nets them 60 points on the season. Unfortunately for Boston, the race in the Atlantic is rather tight this season and 60 points isn’t enough to crack the top 3 at the moment. This is because Tampa Bay has the No. 1 spot locked down with 76 points, followed by the Toronto Maple Leafs and their 62 point tally and the 3rd seeded Montreal Canadiens who have 61. However, with a win at home this evening, Boston can bring themselves back into the top 3. Although they’ve lost the last two in a row, Boston still has a substantial edge over Philly.
Players to Watch: David Pastrnak (28 G, 31 A, 59 PTS.), Brad Marchand (19 G, 37 A, 56 PTS.), and Patrice Bergeron (16 G, 27 A, 43 PTS.).
