NHL: Flyers Bid for Fourth-Straight Win

Claude Giroux Philadelphia Flyers

The Boston Bruins had enjoyed a nice run of success against the Philadelphia Flyers until the two met in Beantown back on October 21. The B’s had strung together six-straight wins over the Flyers before Philly skated to a 5-4 overtime win thanks to a Claude Giroux game winner.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Flyers’ last seven games.
  • The Bruins are 6-2 SU in their last eight games against the Eastern Conference.
  • The Flyers are 5-0 in their last five games at home.

The Flyers just might catch the Bruins at a good time as Boston has lost back-to-back games and four of its last five while Philly has strung together three wins in-a-row as it attempts to climb up the Eastern Conference standings. History, on the other hand, tells a different story when these two clubs face off. The Bruins have gone 6-1 in their previous seven meetings with the Flyers and have even excelled at the Wells Fargo Center, winning in nine of their last 11 visits to the City of Brotherly Love.

Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask certainly hasn’t been the cause of their recent mini slump. In the back-to-back losses, the Finnish shot stopper has allowed just two goals in each contest while the Bruins offense in front of him have managed to find the back of the net just twice.

With the Flyers enjoying some of their best hockey of the season and an opportunity to equal their longest winning streak of the campaign, there could be some betting value on the home team Wednesday night.
