Philadelphia Flyers vs. Detroit Red Wings, 5PM ET (View Matchup)
Detroit is just 3-7 in its last 10 games against Atlantic Division opponents while Philadelphia has won it last four road games and 7 of its last 10 games against the Central Division. My pick is with the underdog Flyers as the Wings have a lot of key injuries and these two teams are evenly-matched at full strength.
