Eastern Conference opponents Ottawa and Philadelphia square up on Tuesday evening in the NHL. Theses are two teams that look to be wild card contenders in the East, though the Sens have staked their claim to third in the Atlantic at the moment, while the Flyers haven’t been able to get consistent enough performances to move up the standings.
The Flyers are a bit of a mystery as the NHL season approaches the quarter way mark. At 7-7-2 the Flyers sit with 16 points but are not even within shouting distance of division leaders New York and Pittsburgh.
This is a team that will likely have to scratch and claw to get into a wild card spot, as the aforementioned two plus the Washington Capitals are a tier above the Flyers. Why those teams are so far ahead is where some of the mystery comes in. The Flyers boast a very solid group of forwards with the likes of Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Wayne Simmonds, along with rookie Travis Konecny who has put up 10 points in his first 16 games.
Shayne Gostisbehere leads a crop of defencemen that includes 2015 first rounder Ivan Provorov, Michael Del Zotto and Brandon Manning. That group are all 26 or younger and there’s been some glaring defensive deficiencies at times, along with some very shaky goaltending from Steve Mason (3.41 GAA, .880 SV%).
When this team cleans it up in their own end they will start putting together wins in bunches as they’ve got a forward group that can play with anyone.
The Sens are arguably one of the early season surprises in the NHL this season. A year removed from finishing 8 points out of a playoff spot, the Sens haven’t made many dramatic roster changes aside from dealing Mika Zibanejad to the Rangers for Derek Brassard.
Youngster Ryan Dzingel has been a nice surprise with nine points thus far, but the big guns aren’t really carrying much of the load yet.
Mike Hoffman has just seven points in 15 games, Mark Stone has just six, as does Bobby Ryan. Erik Karlsson is performing as he always does with 13 points in 15 games, but for this team to maintain their hold on a top three spot in the Atlantic, those top six forwards need to start picking it up a bit.
Veteran netminder Craig Anderson has been great thus far for the Sens with a 7-3-1 record and a .934 SV% that ranks fifth in the NHL. Expect Anderson to carry a heavy workload this season and he has proven numerous times that he is very consistent.

Free Ottawa Senators vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Hockey Prediction:
I always like to lean towards the more sound defensive team in games like this. I think Philly has the better talent up front, but their defensive shortcomings are going to cost them in this one.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Senators +126
Not a lot of goal scoring in this one. The Sens don’t run up the score very often, and the Flyers have more firepower but the Sens play a tight defensive game and Craig Anderson is one of the top goalies in the league right now.
