Philadelphia Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers are being represented by Travis Konecny in the All-Star game alone. That speaks of Philly’s lack of firepower that had them struggling against some of the stacked line-ups in the league. As they host the Penguins, the 22-year-old will seek to make his presence felt anew and boost their chances of outscoring their visitors.

Players to watch: Travis Konecny (GP 46, G 17, A 25, PTS 42), Sean Couturier (GP 49, G 13, A 29, PTS 42), Jakub Voracek (GP 49, G 9,A 28, PTS 37).

Pittsburgh Penguins

Crosby will be a marked man anew in this match. As it seems, the returning skater loves playing against the Flyers. In fact, Crosby poured in three points behind a goal and two assists when Pittsburgh and Philly first met on Oct. 29 which the Penguins won in dominant fashion, 7-1. The team is coming off a come from behind win against the Boston Bruins last Sunday, but they are aiming to start stronger this time against the Flyers and book their seventh win in eight games.

Players to watch: Sidney Crosby (GP 21, G 8, A 17, PTS 25), Jake Guentzel (GP 39, G 20, A 23, PTS 43), Evgeni Malkin (GP 36, G 15, A 35, PTS 50)

Agree with the offered NHL betting lines for this game. Taking a lesser return on a shorter price by backing the Penguins is the more logical choice as they have proven themselves to be as destructive when playing on the road (13-8-2).
