Why you should back the Flyers

Philadelphia hopes to end its three-year postseason drought as it currently is third in the Metropolitan Division, five points ahead of New Jersey. The Flyers are led offensively by right wing Travis Konecny, who tops the club with 26 goals and 53 points. The 26-year-old is riding a six-game point streak during which he has collected four goals and seven assists.

Owen Tippett has reached the 20-goal plateau for the second straight season, recording 21 after setting a career high with 27 last campaign. The 25-year-old right wing has netted three tallies over his last three contests, scoring once against Arizona on Feb. 12 before posting his third two-goal performance in the outdoor loss to the Devils last weekend. Tippett has notched at least one point in 10 of his last 13 games, amassing nine goals and four assists in that span. See who to back at SportsLine

Why you should back the Blackhawks

Chicago’s offense is paced by 18-year-old center Connor Bedard, who leads the club with 17 goals and 39 points despite recently missing 14 games with a broken jaw. The first overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft, Bedard has netted two tallies and set up four others in three contests since returning from the injury. Fellow center Jason Dickinson also has scored a personal-best 17 goals and is three points shy from matching the career high of 30 he set last season.

Another player having his best season is Philipp Kurashev, who has matched his career high in goals with nine and set it in points with 32, which ranks him second on the Blackhawks. The 24-year-old Swiss center enters Wednesday’s matchup with a six-game point streak during which he has recorded one tally and seven assists. Veteran left wing Nick Foligno also has landed on the scoresheet in six consecutive contests, picking up four goals and three assists during the run. See who to back at SportsLine
