In my papers, this game stands out clearly as tonight's best bet selection. In their last game, Edmonton lost their most valuable player Taylor Hall for two-to-four weeks with an MCL sprain. His importance for Edmonton's offense cannot be underestimated. Also missing is their captain, defenseman Andrew Ference who is suspended for three games.
Philadelphia Flyers lost their last game in Florida even though they were dominating especially in the last period. Florida defense played very well and goalie Luongo stopped 36/37 shots.
Before this game, Edmonton had unusually long home game streak of seven games. In the beginning of the season, they played three away games, losing all of them and conceding 5-7 goals in each game.
I expect Flyers to dominate this game at home and therefore select them to win with -1,5 handicap.
