Philadelphia waits at home, after a 7-1 thrashing to The Lightning. Can they rebound on no rest, against The Western Conference elite, Colorado Avalanche?
The Avalanche seem to have stepped back a bit from previous season’s success. Although, through a lot of adversity, they do possess a powerful weapon.
For example, Colorado is the very best in the NHL in scoring goals, by an average of 4.0 per game. Surprisingly though, they’re only shooting 32.9 per outing, ranking 13th and still carry this amazing goal stat.
Moreover, The Avalanche are ranked tenth in the league in powerplay efficiency, capitalizing 22% of the time.
On the defensive side, they’ve really struggled to stay afloat, ranking 27th in goals against, and 25th on the PK. However, the defensemen have been pressing forwards successfully. As Colorado is ranked 8th in shots against per game, only allowing an average of 30.2.
Unfortunately, The Flyers are now on an 8 game slide, after a promising start to the 2021-22 season.
On the offensive glass, Philadelphia is currently scoring 2.4 goals on 31.0 shots per outing, ranking 27th and 17th. Sad to say, their powerplay is only capitalizing 12.5% of chances, ranking second to last in the entire NHL.
Defensively, The Flyers are allowing a flurry of shots, at 34.5 on average per tilt. Moreover, opposing squads are scoring 3.0 goals on average on those chances, ranking 31st for shots, and 19th for goals against.
However, Philadelphia does hold the 13th best PK% league wide, only allowing teams to score 16.4% of the time.

Free Colorado Avalanche vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction
If Philadelphia expects to upset Colorado, they’ll need a ton of luck. As Colorado is scoring more then any other team in the NHL, and The Flyers are allowing more shots per game then everybody except Arizona.
The Avalanche do enter this matchup struggling, as they’ve only won 2 out of their last 5. That being said, The Flyers are downright horrible, and Colorado’s high flying offense will continue to expose this horrible defense.
