Away teams have usually dominated in the Pittsburgh / Philadelphia series but the home squad has won 2 of the last 3. Those are the only 2 wins over the last 8 that the squad on their own ice have been victorious in however.
Pittsburgh does find themselves significant, but not absurg, -135 favorites for Tuesday’s tilt. Both teams head to the all-star break after this matchup, reconvening in 10 days back in Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh would love to go into the break on a roll and they’ve already won consecutive games at Detroit and home against Boston. A 3-game win streak and victories in 7 of 8 would set the Penguins up nicely for the 2nd half.
Pittsburgh is going to be a tough beat in any game here on out because of their combination of success on both ends of the ice. The Penguins have scored 4+ goals in 5 of the last 7 and held opponents to 3 or less in 8 of 10.
Sidney Crosby hasn’t missed a beat since his return from the injured list and he’s a big reason for Pittsburgh climbing to within 4 points of the Capitals in the Metropolitan. The Penguins have also risen to 6th in scoring.
Crosby has played 4 games since his return on January 14th, scoring a goal in 3 of them while having 8 total points over that span. Evgeni Malkin also has 6 points over that span so the Pittsburgh offense is getting near full strength.
Lost in the success of the offense lately is the fact that Matt Murray has held his own in net with 5 straight wins – 3 of those which came in OT. Backup Tristan Jarry has allowed 3 goals in six straight appearances.
The Flyers could do a lot for their 2nd half momentum with a win on Tuesday night heading into the all-star break. Philadelphia has actually been playing pretty good lately with wins in 3 of their last 4.
Despite a successful week plus, the Flyers still have some work to do with 58 points in the very competitive Metropolitan. Philly is 6th in the division, but just a point back in the wild card hunt.
Alain Vigneault’s team has been getting some great offense production as of late with 4+ goals in 3 of their last 4. Sean Courterier has 5 points over that span and Travis Konecny has 3 goals the last 3 tilts.
Where Philadelphia is at a bit of a downfall in this game is the fact that top goaltender Carter Hart suffered an ab injury a week ago. That likely means Brian Elliott in net coming off stopping 34 of 35 shots against L.A.

Free Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
The Penguins look good in this one but the price is a bit steep. Neither goaltender really scares you in this one though and the offenses have been playing well.
