Philadelphia Flyers @ Pittsburgh Penguins Tips


Two teams from the NHL East Division will play out the third episode of a three-game series when the Philadelphia Flyers take on the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, March 6. Philadelphia are currently third in the division, two places above Pittsburgh, and both teams have designs on making the playoffs this season.

Philadelphia and Pittsburgh have played each other four times already this season, with the Flyers leading 3-1. I’m backing Philadelphia to make that 4-1 on Saturday, thanks to the lethal strike partnership of James van Riemsdyk and Joel Farabee, and I see them winning this game by two clear goals in a match that will feature four goals or more.

  • Philadelphia 3rd in NHL East Division
  • Philadelphia 12-8 this season
  • Pittsburgh 5th in NHL East Division
  • Pittsburgh 12-10 this season

The Flyers are third in the NHL East Division, just three points adrift of leaders the Washington Capitals and the New York Islanders who are both on 30 points.

The Flyers are enjoying a recent run of form, with just one defeat in their last five games. Philadelphia are currently involved in a three-match series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, losing the first game 5-2 but winning the second 4-3. The third game will take place on Saturday, March 6.

Verdict

The Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins have already played each other four times this season, with Philadelphia leading 3-1. As well as this Saturday’s game, there are two more fixtures between them scheduled for May.
 
There’s very little to separate these two teams, however, I’m backing Philadelphia to win this match based off their previous record vs Pittsburgh this season, and the prolific goal scoring of their attacking partnership of James van Riemsdyk and Joel Farabee, who have hit the back of the net 20 times between them. The Flyers will win this game by at least two clear goals, in a match that will feature four goals or more.
