Flying up the Standings

The Flyers come off a 3-2 overtime win at New Jersey last night. They’ve now won their last 2, 6 of their last 7, and 8 of their last 10-games. The win last night elevated the Flyers into sole possession of 2nd place in the Metropolitan Division, and they’re now tied with Detroit for 6th overall in the Eastern Conference. Considering this is a club that started the season by losing 7 of their first 8-games, the turnaround has been extremely impressive. The Flyers enter tonight riding a 9-game home winning streak, and are 5-0 in their last 5-games when playing with no rest.

Road Warriors

Montreal has gone a very good 12-9 versus the money line on the road this season. They’ve also earned 26 of 42-points possible in those games. The Canadians enter tonight 3rd in the Atlantic division just 1-point behind the 2nd place Tampa Bay Lightning, and 3-points behind the division leading Boston Bruins. They’re currently 4th overall in the Eastern Conference. The Canadians have been a stingy defensive team this season allowing just 2.3 goals per game which is 4th best in the NHL. Carey Price has been outstanding in goal going posting a 2.22 GAA and a .928 save percentage in 35 starts.
