Having finally ended an eight-game misery run with a win versus Dallas, the Philadelphia Flyers (8th in Metropolitan Division) are paying a visit to the New Jersey Devils (7th in Metropolitan), who have lost three contests in a row…

Flyers Snap Losing Streak

The Philadelphia Flyers (16-22-6) finally ended their eight-game losing skid (0-6-2) after beating the Dallas Stars with a score of 2-1 at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday. James van Riemsdyk (7 goals, 16 points this year) netted the eventual winner on a delayed penalty against the visitors in the middle frame after assisting on the second-period opener by Travis Konecny (11 goals, 24 points). Jakub Voracek (11 goals, 35 points) also scored, but saw his snipe disallowed due to goaltender interference at the very end of the game. Philadelphia is 8th in the Metropolitan Division with 38 points from 44 contests, 14 points below the playoff bubble of the Eastern Conference.

Rookie goalie Carter Hart stopped 37 shots versus Dallas, improving to a 3-4-1 record for the rolling year with a 2.46 GAA and a .920 save percentage. The 20-year-old has never faced the New Jersey Devils before, but is 1-3-0 against the Eastern Conference with a 3.31 GAA and a .874 save percentage. The Flyers, meanwhile, are scoring the 7th lowest number of goals per game so far this season (2.70), while allowing the 3rd highest amount on the defensive end (3.57). They are 2nd from the bottom in power play (13.1%) and 26th in penalty kill (75.5%).

Devils Fail Versus Toronto

The current three-game homestand of the New Jersey Devils (16-20-7) kicked off with a defeat, giving the team its third straight loss (0-3-0) and fourth fiasco in the past five outings (1-4-0) following a 4-2 decision against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Prudential Center on Thursday. Blake Coleman (14 goals, 22 points this year) and Brian Boyle (12 goals, 17 points) scored 26 seconds apart in the second period to cut Toronto’s initial 3-0 lead to a single snipe before the Leafs rounded off the scoring with an empty-netter 22 seconds from time. The Devils are 7th in the Metropolitan Division with 39 points from 43 contests, 13 points off a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Goalie Keith Kinkaid made 39 saves versus Toronto and has now gone 13-13-6 for the season with a 3.07 GAA and a .899 save percentage. He has posted a 7-2-0 career tally against the Philadelphia Flyers with a 2.17 GAA and a .922 save percentage. The Devils, meanwhile, are netting the 14th lowest number of goals per game so far this year (2.88), while giving up the 6th highest quantity defensively (3.35). They are 19th in power play with an 18.1% conversion rate and 2nd best in penalty kill with 85.4% effectiveness.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Devils didn’t have enough firepower to overcome the Toronto Maple Leafs in their previous home game, but are looking pretty good ahead of their matchup against the Flyers, who have not been able to collect a win on their last five travels. New Jersey has been solid on own ice when hosting teams with a poor road record, winning on 199 of the past 306 occasions, and has already banked four victories in its last five domestic fixtures versus Philadelphia.

Prediction: New Jersey Devils

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Seven of the past 10 meetings between both sides in New Jersey have all gone over the total. Still, this particular fixture does look like going in the other direction. Three of the very last four home outings of the Devils have already finished below the six-goal mark, while four of the previous six road contests of the Flyers have all been low-scoring affairs, averaging 3.8 strikes per matchup.

Prediction: Under 6
