This will be the first time these two teams have met since the Flyers eliminated the Canadians in the playoffs. Montreal is a slight favorite in NHL betting at Sbg global on Tuesday.
Flyers 4-1-2 on the Road
The Flyers have played well on the road this season with four wins in seven games. The Flyers have really picked up where they left off last season. Philadelphia is second in the league in goals per game and they are fifth in the league in goals against. The Flyers are simply not doing much wrong so far this season and they are serious contenders in the Eastern Conference.
Canadians 11-5-1 Overall
Montreal has been a pleasant surprise this season. They have played very well this year led by goaltender Carey Price. It was thought that the Canadians may have made a mistake letting Jaroslav Halak get away to the Blues but so far Price has made that decision look good. It is early though and Halak has been very good for St. Louis so who knows. Right now though, Price leads the NHL in minutes played and in wins. The Canadians have been very good on defense but their top player, defenseman Andrei Markov is now hurt and he could be out for a month or more. With Markov out the Canadians are not going to be as good on defense and Montreal’s offense is below average so this fast start could be slowed.
