ESPN NHL Pick Philadelphia Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
Pittsburgh is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams and 5-0 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Philadelphia. Going by these stats alone it would be safe to assume that the Pens have taken a liking to the Wells Fargo center. The Flyers might be on a winning streak but one has to wonder how long the streak can continue. The Penguins might not have been performing at their beat of late, maybe a trip to Philadelphia might be just what the Doctor ordered. Simply put this is the best chance the Penguins are gonna have to get back into the mix of things and I think that they are well aware of this. and for that reason might put in the extra effort tonight. Expect the Penguins to walk away with this one.
