Chicago Blackhawks vs Philadelphia Flyers Prediction: Can Philly's Youngsters Stay Hot?

Both of these teams have had disappointing seasons and were out of the playoff mix early on. The Philadelphia Flyers are coming off a very impressive 4-1 home win yesterday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Chicago Blackhawks vs Philadelphia Flyers Prediction

The Flyers have turned to young players over the past month and one of them had an outstanding game yesterday. Noah Cates had two goals and an assist. He now has points in four of five games. Morgan Frost also added a goal and he now has goals in back to back games. These two, along with youngsters like Joel Farabee, Owen Tippett and Bobby Brink, have injected some life into this Flyers offense and they look to finish out the season with a few wins.

The Chicago Blackhawks are home after a three-game road trip that saw them go 1-2. Patrick Kane, Alex DeBrincat, and Seth Jones are still producing, but this team needs to commit to a major rebuild to get back to their glory days of winning Cups.

I have written before about how you can target Overs in games that feature two non-playoff teams that are giving younger players some minutes. I am going to do that here tonight but I don't like the 6.5 number, so I will pay some extra juice to get the total to six. These two teams met earlier in the season, in Philadelphia, which resulted in a 4-3 Flyers win. I think we will see the same kind of game tonight.
