Flyers Have Fantastic Bounce Back Ability

It may have shocked some just how close the Philadelphia Flyers managed to keep Game 1 against the Washington Capitals on Thursday, but the Broad Street Bullies may be in an even better spot for Game 2 Saturday. The Flyers are 9-2 SU in their past 11 games coming off a loss while averaging 3.7 goals per game in those outings.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 0-3 SU in the past three meetings between the Flyers and Capitals.
  • The Flyers are 6-1 SU in their past seven games after losing the previous matchup in the series.
  • The UNDER is 5-0 in the Capitals past five games following a win.

Braden Holtby has been stellar in his past two outings, as the Veznia hopeful has allowed just one goal on 39 shots in his past 120 minutes of play. Holtby has been his usual stellar self against the Flyers this season, as the Capitals goalie is 3-0-2 with a 1.80 goals against average against Philly this season (playoffs included).

If the Flyers really want to put up a fight against the Capitals, they will need to play better on the powerplay. Philly is 3-for-21 with the man advantage in their past six games, with all three of those goals coming in one game.
