In a game from NHL, we will see Philadelphia Flyers at Boston Bruins.
The Philadelphia Flyers are currently on a 5-game winning streak which was extended last time out when they beat the New York Rangers in a narrow 1-0 affair. Oskar Lindblom opened the scoring with a goal after just 1 minute of play and the game didn’t offer much else afterward. The Flyers’ goalie Anthony Stolarz got the win with a clean sheet on 38 shots and improved to 3-3-2 on the season.
The Boston Bruins recorded two losses since they returned from the All-star break. They lost to Winnipeg, 4-3 in a game where they couldn’t stop anything defensively. The game finished 3-3 in regular time and went to overtime but it was scoreless. The penalties decided the winner and in this case, it was Winnipeg. Jaroslav Halak took the OT loss to fall to 13-9-3 after allowing 3 goals on 27 shots faced in the losing effort plus the 1 goal on 2 shots in the shootout.
The Flyers are on fire but they simply haven’t convinced me that they are a better team than Boston, especially on the road. Boston showed great character in the last game and they were just unlucky to not win the game.
