The Montreal Canadiens and Philadelphia Flyers are set for an Eastern Conference matchup tonight from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Puck-drop is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. EST between the two squads.
The Canadiens come into this game currently sitting in last place within the Atlantic Division. This season hasn’t gone to plan for them and they are just looking ahead to the offseason. However, they have won two straight entering tonight so maybe the Habs have some fight left in them before the year ends. The playoffs are out of reach but they can play some spoiler down the line. Tonight, they face another team that isn’t in the playoff race so this game is all about pride and finishing the year strong.
As for the Flyers, they enter sitting in second to last place in the Metropolitan Division. Offense has been the issue for this team all season long and it has really plagued them. Once they go down in games, they really struggle to find a way to get back into the game so most times, they lose. Like the Canadiens, the Flyers enter tonight on a few game winning streak. If they want it to continue, they’ll need their defense to step up and hope that leads to some offensive production.
Prediction: Philadelphia Flyers 3, Montreal Canadiens 2
Give me the Flyers to keep their winning streak alive as they grab another win tonight.
