Philadelphia Flyers       

The Flyers skid into tonight’s matchup sporting a disappointing 15-21-6 record. That tally nets Philly 36 points on the season, which places them dead last in the Metropolitan. Right now the division is led by the Washington Capitals, who have amassed 54 points this season. With that in mind, it’s pretty clear that Philly’s playoff hopes have already gone down the road. Nevertheless, the club will still take to the ice this evening to try and scrape out a win against their rivals. But considering that Philadelphia enters tonight’s matchup riding a 7 game losing streak, not too many online NHL betting players will be backing them this evening. the last time these two met was in march of last year. That contest saw Philly walk away with the win 6-3. However, things have changed since then. And with Philly brining zero momentum into tonight’s match, this is an easy game to predict.

Players to Watch: Claude Giroux (13 G, 33 A, 46 PTS.), Jakub Voracek (10 G, 22 A, 32 PTS.), and Sean Couturier (15 G, 14 A, 29 PTS.).

Washington Capitals 

The Caps zip into tonight’s Metropolitan matchup sporting a 25-12-4 record. This nets them 54 points on the season, ranking them No. 1 overall in the division. Notwithstanding their current ranking, the Pittsburgh Penguins are right on Washington’s tail with 52 points on the year. Naturally Washington will be vying to stave off the Guins for as long as possible, but their recent slump isn’t helping them out too much. With a 1-3 record in their last 4 games, Washington is hungry for a rebound. Fortunately their facing off against the worst team in the division this evening.

Players to Watch: Alex Ovechkin (30 G, 17 A, 47 PTS.), Nicklas Backstrom (10 G, 34 A, 44 PTS.), and John Carlson (6 G, 33 A, 39 PTS.).
