The Metro Division will grapple with the Central Division this evening as the Philadelphia Flyers head to the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba to battle it out with the Winnipeg Jets. The Flyers come in off a 3-0 loss at Minnesota, while the Jets are off a 4-1 home win over the Coyotes. Goalie Probables: The Flyers will be sending Brian Elliott and he will be opposed by Connor Hellebuyck.

Flyers Blanked In Back-To-Back Games By Minnesota

The Philadelphia Flyers played really well out the gate and they were led by their offense in the early going, but they have been struggling since and their come into this game having been blanked in their last two games. That offense has really abandoned them and they have now averaged just 1.50 gpg in their last six games. Their last game was at Minnesota and they fell in that game by a score of 3-0, which was on the heels of a 1-0 loss to the Wild. They just couldn’t get their offense going in the home-and-home series and they have now dropped to last place in the Metro Division. The Flyers have gone 4-5 on the road so far this year. Absorbing the loss against the Wild was Brian Elliott, who allowed one goal on 18 shot attempts. The Wild scored their final two goals on an empty-net. He is now 6-6 with a 2.59 GAA and a .910 save percentage on the year overall, including 3-3 with a 2.69 GAA and a .906 save percentage on the road. In his career, he has gone 89-85 with a 2.52 GAA on the road and 25-21 with a 2.20 GAA during the month of November, plus he is 51-035 with a 2.19 GAA against the Central, while against the Jets in his career he has gone 10-6 with a 2.40 GAA.   

The Flyers check in at 21st in the league in scoring at 2.78 gpg, while also ranking 13th in shots taken (32.3 spg) and 17th in power play conversions, converting on 18.0% of their chances. At the defensive end of the ice, they have been very solid as they come in ranked 5th in goals allowed, giving up 2.61 gpg, while also ranking 4th in shots allowed (29.2 spg) and 19th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 20.0% of their chances.

Jets Take Two From Lowly Coyotes

The Arizona Coyotes have just two wins on the year and the Winnipeg Jets made sure it stayed that way after they swept Arizona in a home-and-home series. The Jets have now won six of their last eight games and have allowed two goals or less in six of those games, which will not bode well for a Philadelphia team that was just blanked in BB games. The Coyotes have a strong offense and now their goaltending is starting to catch up. They will be a force in the west all year long. Scoring in game two against the Coyotes was Andrew Copp, which was his 3rd of the year, Joel Armia, which was his 3rd of the year, Bryan Little, which was his 2nd of the year and Adam Lowry, which was his 2nd of the year. Grabbing the win against the Coyotes was Connor Hellebuyck, who stopped 33 of the 34 shots that he faced in the game to improve to 9-3 with a 2.32 GAA and a .930 save percentage on the year, including 5-1 with a 2.35 GAA and a .927 save percentage here at home. Steve Mason is slated to get the start against his former team and he has gone 1-4 with a 3.76 GAA and a .892 save percentage on the year. In his career, he has gone 128-111 with a 2.52 GAA in his home games and 31-37 with a 2.55 GAA during the month of November, plus he is 34-44 with a 2.58 GAA against the Metro Division, while against the Flyers he has gone 1-1 with a 3.42 GAA,  

Winnipeg has been a solid offensive team so far as they rank 10th in the league in scoring at 3.29 gpg, while also ranking 31st in shots taken (27.4 spg) and 7th in power play conversions, converting on 22.8% of their chances. At the defensive end of the ice, they have been rather average so far as they come in ranked 11th in goals allowed, giving up 2.76 gpg, while also ranking 25th in shots allowed (33.8 spg) and 20th in penalty kill, allowing teams to convert on 20.3% of their chances.

Trends

Philadelphia is:

  • The Under is 5-1-1 in their last seven road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600
  • The Under is 19-6-1 in their last 26 games playing on one days rest

Winnipeg is:

  • None Available

The Flyers are struggling right now, while the Jets are heading the other way. The Flyers can’t score right now and they have been shutout in three of their last six games, while the Jets have allowed two goals or less in six of their last eight games. I can’t see the Flyers putting up many goals in this one. I also don’t see them giving up many as they have allowed just nine goals in their last five games. The Under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings here in Winnipeg and that is the way I will roll in this one.

Pick: Under 5.5
