Wild vs Flyers Wagering Odds and Game Day Preview
Given their respective spots in the National Hockey League standings, William Hill bookmakers have this match posted as one of the most even contests on the NHL betting board tonight. Following a brutal run, Minnesota went 3-12-4 over their first 19 games to open the New Year; the Wild fired head coach Mike Yeo and replaced him with John Torchetti. The move has sparked Minnesota, as they are 4-1-0 with Torchetti behind the bench. Three of the wins were on the road in Vancouver (5-2) Calgary (5-3) and Edmonton (5-2) while the other was an impressive 6-1 crushing of Chicago during their Stadium Series game on Sunday. The Wild lost 4-1 to the Islanders at home in their last match on Tuesday. As the Flyers up and down 5-4-3 record in February indicates - a rollercoaster style season continues in Philadelphia. The Broad Street Boys return home from a five-game road trip during which they went 2-2-1 including a 3-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Carolina two nights ago.

Michal Neuvirth (13-7-4 GAA 2.21) faces Devan Dubnyk (21-20-5 GAA 2.38) in the goaltenders duel tonight.

Dubnyk is looking to rebound from the loss to New York and he is 9-11-3 with a 2.67 GAA during road games this season. Philadelphia is 13-8-7 at home while Minnesota has posted a decent 12-12-6 record on the road this season.
