EARLY BLACKHAWKS @ FLYERS MONEYLINE MASSACRE
Chicago vs. Philadelphia,
10/04/2019 14:00 EDT,
Score: 3 - 4
Money Line: -114 Philadelphia
The Philadelphia Flyers will take on the Chicago Blackhawks in Prague, the Czech Republic on Friday. The Blackhawks allowed the second-most goals in the NHL last season and Philly has plenty of firepower, particularly in its top line of captain Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier and Jakub Voracek.
This contest seems to be of particular importance to Voracek, a native of Kladno in the Czech Republic. "What does it mean for me? That I get to see my family and friends," Voracek told reporters. "What does it mean for me and the team? That we are here to grab two points. Obviously, we want to have a good start. It didn't happen very often the last few years, so just want to dig in and make sure we show the Czech fans some good hockey."
The Flyers have brought in veteran NHL coach Alain Vigneault, and he should be poised to get the win in his debut with the team. Last season, the Flyers took both meetings and that's a trend I like to continue.
8* play on Philadelphia Flyers.
