I thought streaking was illegal? The Philadelphia Flyers have now won 10 straight games and are just three off their franchise record of the 13 in a row they won in 1985. This one against the Stars will be a tough test for a Flyers team that has given up the second-most goals in the league.
- The Stars are 1-5 in their last 6 games against teams with winning records.
- The Flyers are 6-0 on the moneyline and 5-1 on the puckline in their last 6 games against the Central division.
- The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Stars’ last 10 games at home.
Dallas has been impossible to figure out this year. Just when it looks like they’ve exited a goal-scoring slump they go and get shut out by the Rangers. Luckily for us, these teams played a week ago and the Flyers looked like the much better team.
Philly won that game 4-2 for their eighth straight win and will be hoping for a similar result when they go up against either Kari Lehtonen or Antti Niemi who have an .896 combined save percentage – the worst team save percentage in the league.
The Penguins are on a nice little streak of their own giving the Flyers some extra motivation to keep winning. The longest streak in Pennsylvania pro sports history belongs to the Penguins. They went on a 15-game streak back in 2013 and if the Flyers win tonight, that record will be just that much closer.
