The game here will actually be a little bit of a defensive battle with just a smidge of offensive showcase. However, the true battle will show that the Flyers defense is unable to really come into the game here and bring out the win. Look for that to continue to be the case here as the Flyers defense is outmatched by the Bruins offense. Final Score Prediction, Boston Bruins win 3-1.
