March 28: Philadelphia Flyers, Home

All-Time Record: 17-9-4-2(ties)
Record This Season: Avalanche won 5-4 in the shootout

The Colorado Avalanche host the Philadelphia Flyers at the Pepsi Center on March 28. The two teams played in Philly on November 4. The game went to the shootout, with Mikko Rantanen scoring the game-winner. In regulation, Matt Duchene, Blake Comeau, Mikko Rantanen, and Nail Yakupov also scored.

At the time of writing, the Flyers occupied the first wild card spot in the East with 89 points and a 38-25-13 record. Colorado, of course, has more points and a better record, but that’s how the current NHL is laid out.

For the Flyers, their best player is Claude Giroux with 91 points (26 goals, 65 assists). Jakub Voracek is right behind with 80 points (19 goals, 61 assists). Starting goalie Brian Elliot is 21-11-7 with a goals against average of 2.72 and save percentage of .908.

So, on the face of things, the two teams are pretty well matched.

Best Case Scenario: Avs win in regulation, gain two points
Prediction: Avs win, gain two points
