In NHL action on Friday, February 24, 2023, the Montreal Canadiens will take on the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center, PA, at 7:00 PM ET. The Canadiens have been struggling offensively this season, averaging just 2.67 goals per game and tallying only eight goals in their last three matches. With key players Nick Suzuki, Kirby Dach, and Christian Dvorak out, the offense has suffered, leaving just three active skaters with 10 or more goals and making this a forgettable season for the team.

The defense has been equally problematic, giving up an average of 3.63 goals per game and allowing opponents to score 13 goals in the last three matches. Defensemen Johnathan Kovacevic and Jordan Harris have contributed 4.1 defensive point shares, but opponents have still found ways to get open shots on goal. Goaltender Jake Allen has struggled as well, with a 3.47 goals-against average on 1047 shots, a save percentage of .894, and  -12.1 goals saved above average.

  • Montreal is 4-1 SU in their last 5 road games with Philadelphia.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Montreal’s last 6 games played in February.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of Montreal’s last 6 games played on a Friday.

Montreal Canadiens vs Philadelphia Flyers 2/24/2023 Best Picks, Odds and Previews

The Philadelphia Flyers are having a tough season, struggling with their offense which has only averaged 2.68 goals per game and scoring a measly 14 goals in their last six matches. While the top two lines of Travis Konecny, Scott Laughton, and Kevin Hayes combined for 57 goals and 79 assists, the rest of the offense has been ineffective. As a result, opponents have been able to stifle their attack, given that only six players have scored 10 goals or more.

On the defensive side of the puck, Travis Sanheim, Ivan Provorov, and Nick Seeler contributed 7.2 defensive point shares, which has given opponents ample opportunities to find open shots on goal. The only standout player for the Flyers has been goaltender Carter Hart, who has a.909 save percentage, a 2.89 goals-against average, and has faced 1299 shots with 4.7 goals saved above average.

  • Philadelphia is 1-4 SU in their last 5 games at home against the Montreal Canadiens.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of the Flyers’ last 6 games against an opponent in the East.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Philadelphia’s last 6 games played in February.

Montreal Canadiens vs Philadelphia Flyers. The NHL pick for this game is the Philadelphia Flyers. After pulling off a significant upset victory, the Canadiens are preparing to try their luck again in their upcoming game against the Flyers. However, the Flyers are eager to dominate this game and make a strong comeback after a recent road trip. Led by Travis Konecny and Kevin Hayes, the forward group is expected to move the puck swiftly and create open shots in the offensive zone against a Canadiens defense that has been conceding 3.63 goals per game. By forcing turnovers in their own defensive zone and limiting shot attempts, the Flyers should be able to stifle the Canadiens’ offense, which has only managed to score an average of 2.67 goals per game. This would enable Carter Hart, who has been the standout player for the Flyers this season, to make crucial saves. With a strong showing on their home ice, the Flyers are expected to emerge victorious, with a predicted score of 5-3.
