The NHL didn’t do the Philadelphia Flyers any favors when putting their first few games of the season.
Philadelphia will kick the season off with three consecutive road games against opponents in the Western Conference, including the second of back to back games Saturday against the Coyotes.
The Arizona Coyotes are not being given much of a chance to make the playoffs again this season after finishing fourth in the Pacific division last year with 78 points.
The Coyotes played strong on their home ice last season, but were only able to win 13 on the road. They finished the season with a negative 36 goal differential over all.
The Coyotes front office has the youngest general manager in the history of any of the four major sports with 27 year old John Chayka.
Trading for Alex Goligoski and signing the defenseman to a five year deal was one of his first major moves after taking over his new role.
Goligoski has racked up 277 points throughout his 562 game career in the NHL and played a huge role in the Dallas Stars winning the Central Division last season.
The Flyers finished the regular season last year with 96 points which led to them snatching the final Eastern Conference Wild Card position from Boston by three points.
The Flyers will be forced to start the season without defenseman Radko Gudas, who is serving a six game suspension for an interference call against the Boston Bruins in a preseason game last Saturday night.
First line forward Brayden Schenn will also be suspended for the first three games of the season.
Philadelphia was able to make the playoffs last season despite being ranked 22 in the league in scoring.
The Flyers didn’t exactly do a whole lot to add offense during the offseason.
They averaged 2.6 goals a game last season and couldn’t accomplish much without their top line of Schenn, Giroux, and Simmonds.
Michal Neuvirth and Steve Mason will share the responsibilities in the net again this season after combining for a .933 save percentage during 5-on-5 skating last year.

These two split their games between one another last season with each team winning at home. While this might not be the year for Arizona just yet, they do have a lot of young talent that could make a huge difference in the near future.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Arizona Coyotes -120
I will not pick the Coyotes often this season, but I like them opening the season at home against the Flyers and expect the game to stay under the total of 5.5.
