NBC Sports Network Rout - Rickenbach NHL Rotation #20 Wednesday 10* Top Play Philadelphia Flyers Money Line (-) vs New Jersey Devils @ 7:35 ET - The Flyers are well rested as this will be just their 2nd game of the season. Of course that is because their first game was played in Prague, Czech Republic and the fact it was on Friday means they have had plenty of time to adjust since returning to Philadelphia. The Flyers certainly weren't perfect in their season opener but they did look quite sharp and easily could have won the game by more than a single goal. Carter Hart looked sharp in goal and Philly really skated well in the game. I expect more of the same here and I expect Philadelphia to take advantage of a divisional foe that is off to a shaky start this season. After blowing a 4-goal lead and losing their season opener 5-4 to Winnipeg, the Devils then preceded to get blasted 7-2 at Buffalo. Unlike Philly, New Jersey has early season issues between the pipes as the Flyers certainly hold the edge in goal with Hart in the crease! This is Philadelphia's home opener and their only game on home ice until Saturday the 19th when they host the Stars! In other words, the Flyers surely want to make the most of this opportunity and I fully expect they will do just that. Both the Devils and Flyers are expected to be improved teams this season but, early on, it is the latter that is looking like they have gelled more quickly coming out of training camp. That said, the Flyers are the play here at a very reasonable price on home ice. 10* PHILADELPHIA
