Free Philadelphia Flyers vs. New Jersey Devils NHL Hockey Prediction:
Philly has been in a rough stretch, but they are a solid team on offense. Skating against New Jersey will give them a chance to get back on track, regardless of the fact that they are playing on the road.
Neither team has been great, or even mediocre for that matter at defending the net, so some goals are going to be scored on both ends.
