Capitals vs. Flyers Prediction
With the Capitals having already clinched the top playoff spot in their conference, the Flyers will look to take advantage of a Washington team with nothing to play for tonight at 8:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Flyers are -120 money line favorites over the Capitals, who are +100 money line underdogs for tonight's game. As for the total, the number currently sits at 5 goals.
The Capitals have clinched the best record in the NHL so they have nothing to play for. They could wind up facing the Flyers in the first round, ironically.
The Flyers are on a 11-3-2 run and are even with Detroit for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. Goaltender Steve Mason has kept the Flyers in the hunt with a 7-2-2 record with a 1.97 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage in his last 11 starts.
The Flyers are 9-1 in their last 10 games playing on one day of rest and are 4-1 in their last five home games. They're also 11-5 in their last 16 games and have owned the Capitals in previous meetings, beating Washington in seven of their last 10 games.
