Philadelphia vs Boston: prediction for the NHL game
Philadelphia started their home series with a hard-earned victory against Calgary (2:1 OT). The success wouldn't be possible if it was not for goalie Hart, who made 33 saves. In the second game, the Flyers suffered a defeat to Tampa in a shootout (3:4 SO). Philadelphia had a solid advantage, but failed to maintain it. In general, the Flyers are playing well, but they lack consistency.
Boston mostly played at home lately. They lost in only 2 of the last 7 games, to Toronto (2:5) away, and to Edmonton (3:5) at home. The Bruins' goalie Ullmark was unreliable in both fixtures. We must say, that the Bruins aren't as confident away, often experiencing problems on the defensive. On average the Bruins concede 3 goals per game, which is a lot even for NHL.
In 4 out of 5 head-to-head games, the teams scored in each period.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, the teams scored more than 1 goal in the first period.
Philadelphia often fight off powerful opponents at home, while Boston aren't so convincing at their opponents' courts. But we would still give an edge to the Bruins, who are in better form now.
Our prediction - handicap (0) to Boston
