by Kevin Stott | Pittsburgh Penguins at Philadelphia Flyers (-130, 5o -130) (Versus TV): Despite the way the Penguins have played in the first two games here, this will be the best chance to back the Flyers who went a perfect 4-0 at the Wachovia Center against their intrastate rivals, outscoring them 19-7 in the regular season. And after dropping the first two skates in The Steel City, expect a maximum effort from the Flyboys with a Philly crowd as raucous as they get!

In those four meetings at Philadelphia, the two teams averaged 6.5 goals per game and with the total set at 5 so far for the first three games in this series, taking a shot at the over is worth a shot as Philly cant afford to go down 3-0 in the series and the Penguins have two of the best scorers on planet Earth in Evgeni Malkin and Sid Crosby. Just avoid a scoreless first period. FLYERS, OVER 5.
