Flyers-Blackhawks History

This will be the first meeting between the Flyers and Blackhawks this season, with Philadelphia taking seven of the past nine meetings dating back to 2019. A key trend is that the “under” has cashed in four of the past five games between the two teams in the Windy City.

In the past meeting on April 13, 2023, Travis Konecny scored two goals and assisted on two more to power the Flyers to a 5-4 overtime victory at United Center. Andreas Athanasiou had three points for the Blackhawks but won’t be available for the rematch (lower body).

Flyers Betting Analysis

Philadelphia has been relatively inconsistent lately, including a 6-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils in the 2024 NHL Stadium Series Game. Over their last ten games, the Flyers have gone 4-5-1, scoring 28 total goals (6 on the power play) and allowing 33 goals against.

Flyers forward Travis Konecny leads the team with 26 goals and 27 assists this season. Owen Tippett (21 goals) and Joel Farabee (17 goals, 25 assists) round out Philadelphia’s top offensive weapons.

The Flyers average 2.91 goals per game (23rd) while allowing 2.91 goals against per game (12th). Their power play is converting at just 13.26% (31st), but they have the 2nd best penalty kill at 86.36%.

Carter Hart (2.91 GAA, .903 save %) had been Philadelphia’s primary starter this season, but Samuel Ersson (2.64 GAA, .898 save %) has now taken over the reins in the Philadelphia crease. Ersson is currently a top-10 betting choice in the Calder odds.

Blackhawks Betting Analysis

Things haven’t been going well for Chicago lately, to put things lightly. The rebuilding Orginal Six team managed just one win in their past ten games. They scored 15 total goals and gave up 31 goals during that stretch.

Jason Dickinson’s 17 goals pace the team, while rookie phenom Connor Bedard leads with 39 points (17 goals, 22 assists) despite missing 14 games with a broken jaw. Nick Foligno also has 25 points. Chicago ranks last in goals per game (2.09) and 29th in goals against (3.54). Their power play (13.1%) and penalty kill (77.5%) also rank near the bottom of the NHL.

The Blackhawks have split time between Petr Mrazek (2.93 GAA, .911 save %) and Arvid Soderblom (4.01 GAA, .875 save %). Soderblom has just two wins in 21 games played this season, and has been confirmed as Wednesday’s starting NHL goalie for Chicago.

Flyers vs Blackhawks Prediction

The Flyers have a clear edge in talent and have been the far better team this season. Even with some injuries, their offensive firepower should overwhelm Chicago’s porous defense. The Blackhawks may have been able to keep it close if Mrazek started, but the Flyers should role now that Soderblom is confirmed.

Take Philadelphia to win in regulation and consider the under of 6 goals (-115) in a lower-scoring affair. Caesars Sportsbook initially offered the Flyers to win in regulation at -115, which was great value. This line has moved, however, so lay off if the value has disappeared at your sportsbook.

  • Pick: Flyers 3-Way Line -115 (play up to -130)
