Flyers in Key Matchup with Capitals

Washington Capitals Philadelphia Flyers NHL

The battle for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference is a tightly contested one between the Detroit Red Wings and Philadelphia Flyers and while the latter has a couple of games in hand, one of those will come against the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Capitals are 1-4 SU in their last five games on the road versus the Flyers.
  • The Capitals are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games versus the division.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Capitals’ last five games on the road.

The Flyers and Wings are tied with 87 points and are doing what they can to get a strangle hold on that final playoff spot in the East. Philly enters Wednesday’s meeting with the NHL-leading Caps off a 3-2 overtime win versus the Winnipeg Jets, but has gone 0-3 SU in its last three games following a victory.

The Caps have had a playoff spot clinched for some time now and maybe, just maybe, are on cruise control heading into the postseason. The results have been mediocre (by their standards) as they have gone 7-5 SU in their previous 12 games.

Washington has taken two of three versus the Flyers this season and Philly has struggled against teams from within the Metropolitan all season long. The Flyers have gone just 11-9-6 versus the division so far this season and has slumped to a disappointing 3-7 SU mark in the last 10 spots.

Prediction-scoring formulas run on this game pick a potential 2.8-2.6 result in favor of the Capitals. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NHL matchups here.
