Detroit vs. Philadelphia NHL Key Stats
The Wings have scored 184 goals in 61 games this season, with Dylan Larkin and Dominik Kubalik contributing 39 goals and 56 assists. However, there has been a downfall in the contribution of these players with only two goal involvements in the last five games. The team looks to be out of touch, which makes the situation dire for them in this game.
While defending, the Wings have conceded more than three goals per game this season. This trend has continued in their last few games, too. Goalie Ville Husso is unavailable for the coming game and the team has now to depend upon Magnus Hellberg, who has not been at his best lately.
Comparatively, the Flyers have scored 162 goals in 62 games, with Travis Konecny contributing the most with 27 goals and 27 assists. The contribution from other players has been minimal, and the team does not look good at the moment. They have scored only six goals in their last four games, having an uphill task to change that considerably in this game.
Their defense has been inconsistent, conceding over three goals per game this season. Except for goalie Carter Hart, all others have conceded over three goals per game on average. Although, Hart has not done well either in the last few games. The team will be under a lot of pressure because of it in the coming game.
Red Wings vs. Flyers Betting Prediction
The game is between two struggling teams, both of whom will be under a lot of pressure, which can affect their gameplay. The Wings have lost their last three games on the road and could only score a goal in each game while conceding over 5 goals in return. However, their performance against the team with a losing record is better, with a cent percent win rate in the last four meetings.
On the other hand, the Flyers have failed to use their home advantage losing all their last four games at home. They have also failed to win against teams with a losing record in more than 50 percent of such games. They have scored only two goals on average and have conceded over 4.4 goals on average in their last five games.
Thus, all the factors do indicate that the Red Wings have an edge in this one and can upset the favorites in this one with a better team display.
