Carolina, coming off a Saturday game against the St. Louis Blues, finish off the season in Philadelphia against the Flyers.
Philadelphia, coming off a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, finish the season at home when the Hurricanes come to town.
Sitting 7th in the Metropolitan Division, the Hurricanes have shown some signs of good play but it wasn’t enough in the toughest division in the league.
Carolina has been average at best on both offense and defense, ranking 21st in the NHL in goals scored and 18th in goals against.
Offensively, a good amount of the scoring has come from right wing Sebastian Aho. Aho has 23 goals and 25 assists in 80 games this season. Over his last five games, he has just a single assist.
Jeff Skinner leads the team in scoring with 61 points. He has 35 goals and 26 assists, including four goals and two assists over his last five games.
Sitting right ahead of the Canes in the Metropolitan are the Philadelphia Flyers, who are 6th in the division. It’s been a disappointing year for a Flyers team that looked pretty good through the first couple of months.
Unfortunately, there’s been no consistency on either end of the ice for the Flyers. The team ranks 20th in goals this season and 19th in goals against.
Wayne Simmonds has been the team’s best offensive weapon, tallying 30 goals and 22 assists on the year. In his last five games, he has a goal and two assists.
Brayden Schenn has been solid for Philly as well. He has 25 goals and 29 assists in 77 games this season, including three and two in his last five games.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Carolina is 1-4 ATS in the last five games
- Carolina is 4-2 ATS in the last six games
Free Carolina Hurricanes vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Hockey Prediction:
Carolina has lost its last four games but Philadelphia hasn’t exactly blown people away with its play recently. This game should be close but I like the Flyers to come away with the W at home.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Philadelphia ATS
The scoring of Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn make this Philadelphia team dangerous. If those two can generate the offense, I like the Flyers to score some goals and pull away early. Philly cover the spread.
