5-unit Play Take #53 Philadelphia Flyers over Pittsburgh Penguins (3:05pm EST) With the playoffs looming it's important to take a look at the implications of these final games for playoff matchups. Tonight's game means nothing for the Pittsburgh Penguins as they have locked up the division and are waiting to find out their opponent. They could end up meeting tonight's opponent, the Philadelphia Flyers based on how the next two days play out. The Flyers are tied for the last spot in the Metropolitan and they'd like to avoid playing Pittsburgh in the first round. As a result, this game means a lot more to Philly than it does for Pittsburgh. The Penguins will probably rest some of their guys as they've been banged up a ton lately. I don't think the Pens want to face Philadelphia in the first round either, so there's a good chance they play a little soft and let the Flyers do what they want to. Philadelphia has also played well against the Pens this season as they've won the last three contests. This is a great price on the Flyers given the circumstances, and we're taking it as our 5-unit Game.
