There really is just no way that we could reasonably back the Devils at this point in the season. This is a team that was deflated a few weeks ago when it was beaten in three straight games in either overtime or in shootouts, and it is clear that New Jersey just hasn’t been the same since. It has lost 10 straight games, and it has been beaten in regulation in six of those seven. The offense hasn’t scored a goal in nearly 121 minutes of game time and in spite of the fact that the defense has held its last three foes to a grand total of 42 shots on goal, it has been outscored 9-4 in that stretch. Philadelphia meanwhile, is over its four-game losing streak. Now, the team has won back to back games, and it is perhaps prepped for its one last push to see if it can get into the playoffs. It is probably going to take winning each of the final five games of the season to get the job done, and we think that this is one of those games where it reasonably could happen. The Flyers are definitively the better of these two teams as we see it, and we think that they are going to come out of this game with a comfortable victory to send the Devils reeling once again.
