Penguins vs Flyers Preview

The Flyers finished last year’s abbreviated season 41-21, advancing to the second round of the playoffs before falling to the Islanders. The team didn’t have a headline-grabbing offseason, but return all the key pieces that have them primed for a run at a title.

“I really like our focus,” Flyers coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday. “If you watched practice today, our focus was good. Our attention to detail, the pace, the intensity. I like where our group is right now. We understand what we need to do as far as on-ice systems, and the fact that this is my second year and most of the guys were with me last year enables us to go into the season moving forward with the right mindset.”

Thanks to some realignment to adapt during the COVID-19 pandemic, the matchup is the first of eight this season between Pittsburgh and Philadelphia this season.

“I do feel that physically and mentally we are ready to get the season going,” captain Claude Giroux said. “It is always fun to play them. We are going to be playing them a lot this year, so why not get in a few games right away?”

Pittsburgh got a taste of more playoff disappointment last season inside of the bubble. The Penguins were bounced by the Canadians 3-1 in the qualifying round, one year after being swept by the Islanders in the first round.

The Penguins core of Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang is getting older, but the trio but still hungry for another chance at a Stanley Cup.

“We talk a lot together. We’re still hungry,” Malkin told NHL.com. “Again, we still want like one more Cup, for sure. I feel like that every year. We’re older and older every year. We don’t know how many years we’ll play together, like two or three. Again, we’re excited to be together again this year. I hope I play [with] no injuries.

“I feel great. Everybody’s together. Great chance to have the team follow us and be a leader in this group.”

The Flyers and Penguins will compete in the East Division, which is projected to be one of the strongest top to bottom. Here are the point-total over-under lines, per BetOnline.ag.

East Division
Boston Bruins 70.5
Philadelphia Flyers 66.5
Washington Capitals 65.5
New York Islanders 64.5
Pittsburgh Penguins 64.5
New York Rangers 59.5
Buffalo Sabres 54.5
New Jersey Devils 52.5
