The coldest team in The Eastern Conference takes a short trip to Jersey for a division matchup with another struggling squad, which themselves are on a losing streak of 4 games. That being said, which division rival can restart their season this Wednesday night?
The Flyers come into this game after a heartbreaking loss to the Avalanche, by a 7-5 margin. After an impressive start to the season, Philadelphia cannot get anything going, is now the time to snap out of their funk?
Offensively, Philly is only scoring an average of 2.4 goals, on 31.4 shots per game, ranking a paltry 27th and 17th. Also ranking 27th, is their powerplay efficiency, by only capitalizing 14.3% of the time.

On the offensive glass, New Jersey’s ranked mid-tier at 14th for shots, and 19 for goals per outing. This has been made possible by 2.9 goals, on an average of 32 shots a game.
Sadly though, their powerplay’s suffered tremendously, ranking 31st in the NHL by only scoring on 13.1% of chances.
Defensively, New Jerseys allowing significantly more goals then they’re producing, offensively. For example, The Devils are allowing a staggering 3.3 goals an outing, on an 18th ranked, 31.7 shots against.

All streaks must come to an end, but which team’s will it be? In my opinion, The Flyers are the much better team, with a ton of bad luck recently. On paper, this game should be a firework show, with these teams scoring a ton of goals.
Additionally, Philly’s success this year has happened on the road, as they carry a better road record coming into this tilt.
