Bet here and win
Philadelphia Flyers has gained an incredible playing form and continues to strengthen its position in the Eastern Conference standings. To date, it has taken 5th place and earned 73 points. In the 6 extreme games the pilots suffered only 2 losses, both from the championship leaders. First they lost to New York Islanders (3-5), and then lost to Tampa Bay Lightning with an identical score winning over Florida (6-2) and Columbus (5-1). It can be seen from the game that the Flyers are not yet ready to compete with serious rivals, but they rarely have problems with outsiders and equal in strength opponents.
Also, we should not forget that Philadelphia are among the top three home teams. It has stunning performance stats at home.
However, the away game of Alain Vigneault team leaves much to be desired, as the Flyers achieved success in the main time only six times in 31 games. It should also be noted that on average they concede a little more than four pucks per game away.
Columbus Blue Jackets
Columbus Blue Jackets closes the Eastern Conference’s top eight teams. Jackets have been at the bottom of the standings for a long time, but since mid-December they have produced an incredible series of victories that put them in the playoff zone.
Now they have a decline in the game again, which is due to numerous injuries of the main hockey players and the accumulated fatigue of the goalkeeper. In the extreme matches Elvis Merzlikins (second goalkeeper) shows extremely uncertain results, he has already missed at least 3 pucks in 4 games in a row. This suggests that his current physical shape is far from ideal. It should be noted that the main goalkeeper is still in the infirmary, so John Tortorella’s players cannot resist the top teams.
The team can’t interrupt the series of defeats and has already lost six games in a row. If New Jersey lost to Jackets in a stubborn bullfight (3-4), the match against Philadelphia saw only one puck and a 1-5 loss.
Due to this series of failures, Columbus has become to be the best club in the Missed Pucks Club. However, the team holds the confident game on their ice and together won 18 meetings out of 32.

Flyers vs Blue Jackets Prediction
Jackets regularly give a decent fight to their vis-a-vis at home. Although, the Blue Jackets suffer huge problems with their roster having 7 players injured who won’t help their teammates in the upcoming match anyway. Philadelphia finds it difficult to play away but Alain Vigneault doesn’t have to rearganize his team as John Tortorella has
For that reason we would not predict a lot of goals in this match, ending with a victory of the Jackets. Columbus will surely do everything possible to a his revenge on Philadelphia and pleasing their fans.
Our prediction: Columbus Blue Jackets will win.
