The Philadelphia Flyers need a regulation win and some help to get into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Chances are slim, but they still have a scenario to get into the 16-team field, starting with a regulation win over the Washington Capitals.

The Flyers are favored on the money line at -148, but the real number to be concerned about is the 60-minute money line, sitting around +105 as of publication.

A regulation win is required for the Flyers because of the tiebreaker scenarios involved in earning the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. They also need a Montreal Canadiens win over the Detroit Red Wings in regulation, as well as a Pittsburgh Penguins loss in regulation to the New York Islanders on Wednesday.

The Canadiens had a third-period lead over the Red Wings on Monday night before Detroit came back and won in overtime, so the Montreal leg is possible. The Canadiens are a juicy +230 on the 60-minute money line on Draftkings, with variable prices on other sportsbooks.

A Flyers + Canadiens 60-minute money line parlay pays out at +576 on DK.

There aren’t lines available for the Penguins/Islanders game as of writing, but if you get it before puck drop Tuesday night, the Isles’ 60-minute money line would be the third piece to the parlay puzzle.

As for the Flyers game itself, they do get the Caps on the second leg of a back-to-back. Washington beat the Boston Bruins in a tough scrap on Monday night. Maybe the Caps are worn down and that helps as the game goes on.

Both Flyers/Caps games this season had exactly seven goals. Both teams had over 30 shot attempts in the December meeting, but neither team had over 25 shot attempts on March 1st.

I subscribe to the theory that the big-name players show up in moments that matter most. Alex Ovechkin, Travis Konecny, and Owen Tippett fall into that category for this game. All of them had at least three shots on goal in the December matchup, while Tippett had six shots on goal on March 1st.

Tippett had at least three SOG in seven of his last nine games, Konecny scored in back-to-back games and had nine SOG in the Flyers last two games versus teams in playoff positions, but Ovechkin only had three or more SOG once in the last five games.

Those three guys are the best shots to score, but goals may be at a premium. The last three Flyers wins had five goals or fewer, as have three of the last five Capitals victories. If this is it for the Flyers, maybe we go to PA online casinos instead, play the NHL-themed blackjack and roulette games over there.
