Red Wings Already Looking Toward Next Season
Looking at NHL picks and projections and not seeing the Philadelphia Flyers or Detroit Red Wings in the playoffs is still strange for people that have followed the league for a long time. Both franchises are in the middle of long rebuilds. Neither will be breaking through for the playoffs this season, but both are hoping to build some momentum with wins over each other.
The Flyers are in better form at the moment. Philadelphia has won three of its past four games and was able to earn a point during its loss due to forcing the game into overtime. Detroit has lost five of six and doesn’t seem to have figured many things out late in the season.
Detroit Could Use Pick-Me-Up
NHL lines show that the Detroit Red Wings haven’t found much to be happy about over the past few weeks. Detroit has been limited to two or fewer goals in three of its past four losses. The Red Wings are averaging 2.9 goals per game and only get 28.7 shots per net per game.
Defensively, Detroit has just been OK. The Red Wings allow 3.27 goals per game and allow opponents to get 30.7 shots per game. Detroit kills 78.6 of opposing power plays.
The Red Wings’ top goaltender, Ville Husso, will miss the game against the Flyers with a lower-body injury. Magnus Hellberg may get the start in his place.
The current Detroit Red Wings lines indicate the team has struggled on the road this season.
Philadelphia Seeking to Maintain Offensive Form
Recent data shows that Philadelphia Flyers have been catching their opponents off guard in recent games. The Flyers average 2.68 goals and 29.3 shots per game. Philadelphia has scored four or more goals during its past four games.
If you follow the NHL news, you know that Philadelphia leading goal scorer Travis Konecny, who has 27 goals, is still on injured reserve. However, there are reports that he is practicing in a non-contact jersey.
