Habs in the City of Brotherly Love
The Philadelphia Flyers will host the Canadiens on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia with the opening face-off slated for 7:05 PM ET. According to NHL odds, both teams are -105 on the money line, and the posted total is 5.0. Since the start of the 2010-2011 campaign, the Flyers are 10-4 versus the Canadiens. These teams saw all 3-meetings go under the total last season. Since 5/16/2010, Philadelphia has won 10 consecutive home games against Montreal.

 

Opposite Starts to the Season
The Canadiens have opened the season with by winning their first 2-games, and each of those played on the road. Montreal opened the year on Wednesday in Toronto, and defeated Leafs 4-3. They followed that up with a 2-1 overtime shootout win on Thursday over the Washington Capitals. Both of those wins came as a money line underdog. Montreal has the unenviable take of starting the season, playing 3 road games in 4-nights. They’ll also play in Tampa on Monday versus the Lightning, before returning to Montreal for their home opener on Thursday versus the Boston Bruins.

The Flyers haven’t been so fortunate in opening the season with a pair of 1-goal losses. They lost their season opener at Boston 2-1. Boston’s Chris Kelly snapped a 1-1 tie by scoring the game winner with less than 2-minutes to play in the 3rd period. Then on Thursday, the Flyers dropped their home opener to the New Jersey Devils by a final score of 6-4. Philadelphia will be out to avoid last season’s dismal start to their home schedule when they lost 7 of their first 9-games at the Wells Fargo Center.

 

NHL Super Money Line System
Any home team, versus an opponent playing on 1-day of rest, this will be their 3rd game in 4-days, and they won each of their previous 2-games, has gone 46-18 (71.9%) against the money line as a NHL pick since 1996.
