Free Washington Capitals vs. Philadelphia Flyers NHL Prediction:
I think defending the power play is going to be huge in this one on Thursday. On the season, both teams were right around 20 percent on the power play and both at 82 percent on the penalty kill.
That being said, Washington has given up more shorthanded goals to the other team than the Flyers. If Philadelphia can light up the lantern once while skating a man down in this game, it will go a long way in getting them the win. They enter this one with a total of eight goals while skating a man down.
I’m not exactly sure if defending the power play will be an issue for the Capitals in this one, but either way, I like the Flyers getting the win. My money is on Philadelphia.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Philadelphia -115
