Philadelphia vs Columbus
Columbus Blue Jackets will visit Philadelphia to meet the Flyers team. IMO road team is the winning bet here and I like this bet very much, especially when I see these underdog odds on the Blue Jackets.
The visiting team is in great form. Namely the Blue Jackets have won the last five straight games and they now with good reason can hope to reach playoffs.
Today Columbus will meet with a team who is slightly better on the standings (Flyers are on 6th position in the Eastern Conference) but who have just two points more. The form is definitely not going in favor of Philadelphia who lost five straight recently and then just shortly get back on the winning track for one game. After that the Flyers again have lost. That was here on home ice in their previous game when hosted Vegas, 2:3. It was by the stats the game heavily dominated by the Flyers who completely outshoot Vegas but still, they failed to win. Fact the Flyers are in trouble even when are dominates, speak for itself.
The big problem for Flyers in this season was goaltending. I mean on injuries. That's why Philadelphia not so long ago brought Petr Mrazek and at first seemed like the things working pretty solid but not anymore as of late. And IMO this struggle will continue also today.
The host also has some doubts in small injuries with Johnny Oduya as well Robert Hagg.
For Columbus Matt Calvert missed the previous but should be available in today's game. Also Seth Jones who was forced to leave last game is probable for today.
