NHL Betting Predictions: Philadelphia Flyers vs Pittsburgh Penguins
Today we see if the Pittsburgh Penguins can bring it to game seven with a third win in a row knotting the series at three a piece. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Penguins as -125 favorites at home over the visiting Flyers who are one up in the series.
Friday the Pittsburgh Penguins were facing elimination in the fifth game of the series down 3-1 , and boy did they come through. Down by one heading into the second period Jordan Staal put up his sixth goal of the series assisted by Tyler Kennedy and KrisLetang. Following just a few minutes later would be the game winning slap shot from Tyler Kennedy assisted by Matt Cooke, and Jordan Staal.
Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury got his stuff together and made 14 saves in the 3rd quarter to seal the win, he had 24 saves on the night. Jordan Staal is leading the team in scoring with 9 points on 6 goals and 3 assists. Sidney Crosby had 3 goals, 5 assists trailing Staal by a point for the team high. Evgeni Malkin also has 2 goals and an assist in the 4th game but did nothing in the fifth.
The Philadelphia Flyers had a big chance to put it away yesterday with a 2-1 lead after the first with a Scott Harnell assisted by Danny Briere, and Claude Giroux. The first Philadelphia goal of the period came from Matt Carle assisted by Matt Reed, and Jaromir Jagr. Claude Giroux currently leads the Flyers in points with 11 from 5 goals and 6 assists. Behidn him is Danny Briere and Jaromir Jagr both with 7 points apeice, Jagr had 1 goal 6 assists, while Briere has 4 goals 3 assists.
Neither Philadelphia Flyers goalie has been very effective with Ilya Bryzgalov letting up 20 goals in 5 starts allowing a 4.55 GAA, and Sergei Bobrovsky letting in everything that is shot his way allowing 5 goals in just a game. The Flyers will need to turn the heat up tonight to not see their early lead and hard work diminished from three straight Pittsburgh victories.
NHL Betting Prediction: I look for the Pittsburgh Penguins to hold tough tonight at home and bring this series to game seven against the Philadelphia Flyers.
