Secret favorites among themselves. That is true of the Boston Bruins vs. Philadelphia Flyers game, when the No. 5 against the No. 6 of the Stanley Cup favorites cross the rackets.
Especially the Bruins are at the top of the list at the end of the season, as our big NHL season preview shows. At the start of the season, however, the men around Bergeron, Marchand and Co. still had some sand in the machine.
Table of Contents
In their first four games of the season they only scored nine goals, five of them on Thursday when they met Philly for the first time, which they won 5-4 after a shootout.
Despite this defeat, the Flyers’ start to the season can be rated as more positive, they have already scored 19 times and are the second best offense in the NHL. For this reason, we don’t see them as the underdogs on Saturday against Boston either.
Philadelphia currently leads the East Division of the league with seven points. We don’t believe that they are left behind after the defeat against Boston, which is why a tip on Philly is the bet of our choice at Bruins vs. Flyers.
The game starts on Sunday night at 1:00 a.m. in Boston. Our interesting NBA tips, for example the game of Jazz against the Warriors, are also worth a look at the betting base.

Boston Bruins – Statistics & Current Form
The Bruins came three games and two-thirds out of the way this season. But then came the third third of the game against the Flyers on Thursday and they met four times – as many as in all previous games.
Was that the starting signal for your offense? That remains to be seen. They cannot rely on the Flyers to allow themselves such weak 15 minutes as on Thursday.
Shot accuracy is still missing
Overall, the Bruins have failed to exploit their chanceswhich is certainly also related to the absence of their best striker David Pastrnak, who had to undergo hip surgery in the off-season.
Without him, the attack machinery in Boston is not yet running smoothly, as the storm rows had to be mixed up a bit. It cannot be assumed that this weakness could now be remedied with a single game.

Tuukka Rask als Erfolgsgarant
The fact that Boston is only two points behind the Flyers despite the offensive starting difficulties is partly due to their top goalie Tuukka Rask. The Finn has a very good record with a goal against 2.23 and made some world class saves in overtime on Thursday.
For Saturday we do not expect that as many goals will be scored as in the first meeting of the two teams, which is why our forecast for Boston vs. Philadelphia is a game with few goals – with an open outcome.

Philadelphia Flyers – Statistics & Current Form
The Flyers have enormous offensive power. But is their defense good enough to stay up in the East Division until the end? There are justified doubts about that, especially about the performance of goalie Carter Hart.
With a goal average of 3.67, he is currently only 46th of all NHL goalies. For this reason we assume that backup Brian Elliott will be preferred again on Saturday.
Second best offense in the NHL
Currently, however, Philly plays some of the best ice hockey in the leaguewhat their already 19 goals prove. The veterans Kevin Hayes and James van Reimsdyk as well as youngster Travis Konencny, who even tops the internal scoring list with four goals, are particularly convincing.
Her power play has also been excellent so far with a success rate of 29.41% (NHL rank 7). It is hardly noticeable that they lost an important striker to the Maple Leafs in the off-season with Wayne Simmonds.
Against Boston, your defense also matters
On Saturday, however, their defense will be more in focus and so will goalkeeper Elliott. If he succeeds in confirming his good catch quota of 96.4%, then the flyers could turn the tables this time.
Since we foresee a typical 50:50 game, the Bruins vs Flyers odds on Philadelphia are much more competitive than those on Boston. An alternative would be sub-items, whereby the strong offense of the Flyers could thwart our plans.

Direct comparison / H2H balance
The Bruins won the last direct duel on Thursday just after the penalty shoot-out. Otherwise, these two teams don’t take much from each other. Philly even won five of the last eight duels.
That is why on Saturday everything will depend on the form of the day, starting with the goalies. Start with the Flyers Carter Hart, then we see Boston at an advantage; starts Elliott, then we tend to flyers.
Since there is still so much sand in the gear of the Bruins Offense, bets on under three goals in Boston are also an alternative. So far, they have only broken this mark once in 2021.
Statistics highlights for Boston Bruins gegen Philadelphia Flyers
Betting base forecast & Boston Bruins – Philadelphia Flyers tip
The Bruins come into play with the sense of achievement from Game 2 of this mini-series. However, since this victory only came about after a penalty shootout, this is not the very big advantage over Philly.
The Flyers, on the other hand, will be hot not to give up both duels at the start of the season. With a good goalie performance, that could also work, as we always think they can hit at least three goals offensively. In the case of Boston vs. Philadelphia, a tip on the flyers is therefore possible.
Key-Facts – Boston Bruins vs. Philadelphia Flyers Tipp
- Philly currently leads the East Division with seven points
- Flyers goalie Elliott currently has the third best goal average of all goalies with 1.31
- At Boston top striker David Pastrnak is still out for this game
In addition, tips on sub-points at Boston vs. Philly are an option given the odds. The Bruins were only able to score eight goals in four games (+ one in the penalty shootout), but have a very good goalie on the ice with Tuukka Rask.
