After winning the first outing of their back-to-back, home-and-home series against the Red Wings (7th in Atlantic Division) yesterday, the Philadelphia Flyers (6th in Metropolitan) are heading to Detroit to sweep the set…

Flyers Bank OT Win

The Philadelphia Flyers (27-24-7) won for the second consecutive time after beating the Detroit Red Wings with a 6-5 overtime count in the first outing of a back-to-back, home-and-home set at Wells Fargo Center yesterday. It was the 12th triumph in the last 15 outings (12-2-1) for the Flyers, who had dropped eight consecutive decisions prior (0-6-2). Philly is 6th in the Metropolitan Division with 61 points from 58 games, trailing a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference by seven points.

Goalie Cam Talbot, who has just been acquired from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Anthony Stolarz, is set to make his Philadelphia debut, having already gone 10-15-3 for the rolling year with a 3.36 GAA and a .893 save percentage. He is 4-2-2 against the Detroit Red Wings with a 2.60 GAA and a .913 save percentage. The Flyers, meanwhile, are 14th in least goals scored per game (2.95), 6th in most goals allowed on average (3.34), 21st in power play (17.7%) and 4th from the bottom in penalty kill (76.7%).

Wings Fail In Philly

A two-game winning run came to a premature end for the Detroit Red Wings (23-28-8), who still managed to collect a point from the first outing of their back-to-back, home-and-home series against the Philadelphia Flyers, losing 6-5 in overtime at Wells Fargo Center yesterday. It was Detroit’s fourth defeat in the past six contests (2-3-1), as the team has won five of its last nine games (5-3-1). The Red Wings are 7th in Atlantic Division with 54 points from 59 fixtures, 14 points off a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Goalie Jimmy Howard (17-15-5 on the year with a 2.82 GAA and a .913 save percentage) gave up five goals on 24 shots before being pulled for Jonathan Bernier (6-13-3 with a 3.37 GAA and a .897 save percentage), who made seven saves in relief. Bernier is 4-4-1 versus Philadelphia with a 4.06 GAA and a .891 save percentage, while Howard has posted a 5-4-1 career total against the Flyers with a 3.33 GAA and a .894 save percentage. The Red Wings are 8th in least goals scored per game (2.80), 9th in most goals conceded on average (3.24) and 24th in both power play (16.4%) and penalty kill (77.6%).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Red Wings have lost six of their past eight outings played with no rest. But do expect them to deliver when hosting the Flyers in the second fixture of their back-to-back, home-and-home set. Detroit put up a good fight in the first game, netting four consecutive snipes in the third period to force overtime, and is definitely in a good position to extend its point streak to four contests, with the home team winning 23 of the past 29 meetings between the pair. The Red Wings have already banked 20 victories in their previous 27 contests played on the second night of a home-and-home series, so do stick with the hosts in this one.

Prediction: Detroit Red Wings

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Four of the last five encounters between the two teams in Detroit have gone way below the total, averaging just 2.8 strikes per fixture. So, another low-scoring affair is pretty much on the cards here. The Flyers have already gone under the total in six of their previous eight contests following a win, while five of the past six domestic matchups of the Red Wings have all seen no more than five strikes netted.

Prediction: Under 6
