OUR PREDICTION: Following the Flyers' 2-0 win in Game 5 on Friday night, the under is now 4-1-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams. Despite their victory, Philadelphia only got off 10 shots against Braden Holtby while Washington took 44 shots versus Michal Neuvrith. If the Flyers only get off 11 shots (they also scored on an empty-netter), then the under is sure to cash again for bettors.
