New Jersey at Philadelphia NHL Hockey Betting Lines, Odds & Vegas Predictions (10/09/19)
New Jersey Devils at Philadelphia Flyers NHL Matchup
The Flyers won their opening game 4-3 against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday as part of the National Hockey League’s Global Series in Prague.
Travis Konecny scored two goals, second-year goaltender Carter Hart made 28 saves and first-year coach Alain Vigneault won his debut. Vigneault was named the 21st coach in Flyers history after the club missed the playoffs for the fourth time in seven years.
Konecny scored only three goals through the first 19 games last season, so this performance in the opener has to be encouraging.
“What I see is a young man that has got a lot of energy, wants to learn how to play the right way,” Vigneault said. “It’s not just about offense — he wants to defend and he wants to defend well.”
