Handicapping Ice Conditions For Flyers-Pens Stadium Series Game

Temperatures reached a 77 degrees Fahrenheit in Pittsburgh on Friday afternoon. That’s the fantastic news for the locals.
The good thing is that it reached 77 degrees Fahrenheit — only 1 day before the Stadium Series outdoor NHL game at Heinz Field between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins.
This could lead to ice conditions playing with a large factor in the outcome of the sport, something that puck bettors must remember. Temperatures were expected to be around 60 degrees as of Saturday morning, which will be sure to create the ice soft and chippy once play gets moving if it does not get cold in a hurry.
It is supposed to be around 29 degrees Fahrenheit by game time at 8 pm ET in Pittsburgh, however that might not be cold enough, quickly enough to correct the ice.
Do not be shocked if we see bouncing pucks and a slower-paced game. Which I believe is an advantage for the Flyers.
“I think our competitive advantage is the speed game. We must become more determined than our competitors,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said at a media event on Friday in Heinz Field.
A slower-paced game could mean some worth for the underdog here. That is some big value considering that the Pens opened as hefty -210 faves together with the Flyers at +185.
Additionally, it might mean we see that a more careful game from players. No one wants to find harms, which are more inclined to take place on inconsistent ice, especially considering Pens star Sidney Crosby suffered a concussion at Pittsburgh’s last game at Heinz Field in 2011.
When it comes to a warm-weather baseball match like this, the common logic is that the game will be slower and goals will likely be fewer. That would imply UNDER the 5.5-goal complete. This was the case at Dodger Stadium in 2014 if the Ducks skated to a 3-0 win over the Kings in 63-degree weather.
“It was maybe a bit slower than a rinks, but it had been smooth,” Anaheim’s Teemu Selanne said after the game. “We’re used to not-good ice out (West) anyhow”
Keep a watch before the match to see what’s being mentioned about Twitter about the ice conditions before you place your wager on this one. Bouncing pucks don’t make it easy on goalies either and Pittsburgh is on pace to be the highest-scoring group (3.47 targets per game) in the salary cap era next to the 2009-10 Capitals.
If you are betting in-game, the Pens are 25-0 when leading after two periods this year, based on NHL on NBC stats. This makes them the only undefeated team in that spot this year and they were 39-0 when leading after two periods this past year from the regular season.
