Both teams played last night. First-place Carolina lost to a strong Toronto squad last night but now gets a much softer opponent. Carolina is 12th in the NHL in goals scored and third in shots on goal, while the defense is second in goals surrendered (2.54 pg) and No. 1 in shots on goal allowed. Carolina is 20-7-6 on the road and 29-6 versus teams that allow 2.85+ goals per game. Last-place Philadelphia has a losing record both home and away. The Flyers have the third-worst offense in the league, while the defense is 20th in goals surrendered (3.28 pg) and 18th in save percentage (.903). Philadelphia is on a 3-10-2 run and is 13-39 versus winning teams, 23-59 when playing its third game in five days, plus 5-23 in the second of a back-to-back. Play Carolina.
