Stadium: BB&T Center (Sunrise)
Philadelphia could not oppose the Tampa Bay Lightning, losing 0-4 to the reigning champions. Now the Flyers also face a back-to-back against Florida, the East’s runner-up at the moment. It looks like Alain Vigneault’s team will lose for the second day in a row.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
It’s like Florida never went anywhere
After a disappointing road trip in which the Panthers suffered four straight losses, Andrew Brunnett’s team has won three straight at home. All three games were won in regulation time. First, the Panthers outscored the New York Islanders 6-1, then thrashed New Jersey 4-1, and after that, they defeated Minnesota 5-4. How was it? It’s always better at home than away.
Florida have a total of 13 wins in 18 games. The Panthers are solely in control of the Atlantic Division, while only Carolina are second in the Eastern Conference standings.
Philadelphia got what they deserved
There’s no other way to describe the Flyers’ defeat to Tampa Bay. Alain Vigneault’s team is bending the line, believing it can handle last season’s contenders with their weapons. It seems like the Flyers, given the roster, would have a much better chance to prove themselves by playing attacking hockey. That niche is pretty much vacant right now.
Expert Betting Tips
The Tampa Bay Sunrise’s back-to-back is not a good time to be laying at least some results at all. After a destructive Lightning rink, the Flyers will simply fall under the Panthers’ rink before they have time to recover. Philadelphia have no chance of success here.
The prediction is a win for Florida.
