Flyers' Games Have Been Going Over With A Bullet

The team with the highest total goals for and against will play tonight as the Philadelphia Flyers take on a Detroit Red Wings team that has been a little more stingy. The boys from the Motor City sit in a three-way tie with Tampa and Ottawa for second in the Atlantic but they all have plenty of ground to gain on the Canadiens, who have lost just one point all season.

SHARK BITES
  • Flyers games so far have had an average of 7.4 total goals.
  • The Red Wings are 0-11 in their last 11 games on the road against the Flyers.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Flyers' last 7 games with a closing total of 5.5 or more.

Philadelphia’s high-volume scoring bodes horribly for the Red Wings, whose four losses this season have come against other teams that have been in the top half of the standings in goals scored per game.

The Flyers have not been great at home this year, winning just one game in regulation time at the Wells Fargo. One thing we can expect from the Flyers at home, though, is goals. In their five home games this season, there have been a total of 7.8 goals scored per game and there have been nine scored in each of their last two.

Neither team has confirmed its starter but if Peter Mrazek gets the start for Detroit, take note that in his two career starts against the Flyers, he owns a .935 save percentage.
