Prediction

The Avalanche are not having a good start this season as they have lost 4 of their last 6 games but they beat twice the Flyers last season. The Flyers are also on a 3 game losing streak and have been struggling offensively scoring only 1.6 goals per game in those losses. Both teams have struggled lately but the Avs are by far the better team and have the home advantage. Take the Avs.
