The Coyotes are 7-3 in their last 10 road games. Arizona is 25-53 in its last 78 games versus the Metropolitan Division.

Philadelphia

The Flyers are 6-1 in their last seven games as a home favorites. Philadelphia is 4-1 in its last five Thursday games.

Prediction:

The Flyers are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now and after staying at home the last couple days while facing an Arizona squad on a road trip, I like the better-rested team here. Hart has rounded into form lately and as Tuesday night showed, he's getting plenty of support in front of him. I'm not going to fade the Flyers right now.
