Moneyline: Flyers (-140*) has a 56% probability

Philadelphia know that they didn’t show up in their last match and will be looking to correct course tonight. Our predictive model sees Game 2 as being just a small aberration. Look for the Flyers big players to step up when needed.

Puck line: Canadiens +1.5 (-236*) has a 68% probability

Our model sees this one as being an extremely close contest. If you can’t completely trust the Flyers to make up for their horror show in Game 2, take the Canadiens at the puck line instead.


Dimers' take-out

This looks to be an absolutely salivating contest. The Flyers went into this series with the better record and if they don’t produce tonight, they’ll be staring down the barrel of a shock exit. We think they’ll learn from their mistakes.
