The Boston Bruins look to solidify their spot at the top of the Atlantic Division when they travel to Philadelphia to take on the Flyers in a midweek clash.
The Boston Bruins have been rather consistent throughout the campaign, leading their division all year long. They look poised to end the season atop the Atlantic but are not there yet with a surging Tampa Bay side on their trail. Two points on Tuesday night will be important for the visitors.
The Philadelphia Flyers are one of the hottest teams in the league at the moment and are creeping up on the Washington Capitals in the Metropolitan Division much to the surprise of fans and journalists and the upset of the free picks out there. They will be ready and anxious to take on the Bruins on home ice.
This will be an intense affair between two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. While Boston has travelled well throughout the season, Philadelphia has a ridiculous record at the Wells Fargo Center.
There may not be another team in the league as good on home ice as the Flyers. Take the home team to earn a big win.
The Flyers have been sensational at home, regardless of who their opponent has been. It has been thanks to the strength of their play at the Wells Fargo Center that they find themselves fighting for first place in their division. The Flyers to win at home might be the best free pick of the week.
