The Flyers are another really talented team who is missing something right now, but you feel is setup quite well for the future, so they may very well be a contender sooner rather then later.
The Bruins have been alternating wins and losses for awhile now which is quite disappointing for a Bruins team that has this much talent, as the roster is solid but they are unable to produce on the ice right now.
Brad Marchand has been having a particularly good season with 17 goals and 24 assists, as he leads all Bruins in points with 41, although that might not last until the end of the season with David Pastrnak back in the fold.
The Bruins have a pretty good blue line only allowing 2.49 goals per game which is also because of the play of Tukka Rask and Jaroslav Halak with the main issue for the team being overall offense scoring at a rate of only 2.78 per game.
The Flyers do have some serious depth this year in terms of offensive production, as they have 8 different players with 20 points or more, but the offense is likely not the problem in the minds of main Flyers fans.
The defense on the other hand has been awful and it is not just the blue-line’s fault with their goalkeeping being some of the worst in all of the NHL with Carter Hart not getting the job done and you wonder where this team could be if they had reliable high-level goalkeeping.
Thankfully there will be no surprises here for us, as Carter Hart is the confirmed starting goalie here and he come in here with a GAA close to 4 and a save percentage of .871% which are numbers which speak for themselves.
This Bruins team does not score a ton of goals, but it does look like they could have a decent enough chance to put up some offense given the A+ matchup they are walking into this Tuesday.

Free Boston Bruins vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
The Flyers do have enough offensive ability that they can make up for some of their faults at the back, so I do feel more comfortable going with the over here, as this one could go either way in terms of the side.
Given the information we know right now, that total at 5.5 is not all that high, as I would have expected this to be a game where we see the bookies open at 6. The over is hitting a ton lately for the Flyers as well with plenty of the trends pointing to yet another high-scoring game here and it is not like the Bruins are incapable of scoring given the goalie situation in Philadelphia.
