NHL Picks Winnipeg Jets vs Minnesota Wild 04/20/2018NHL Picks Pittsburgh Penguins vs Philadelphia Flyers 04/20/2018

It’s the fifth game in the Eastern Conference Round 1 playoff between the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins at the PPG Paints Arena on Friday evening.

Two-time defending Stanley Cup holders the Penguins hold a 3-1 lead in the series following Wednesday’s 5-0 victory at the Wells Fargo Center, so a win on Friday will see them progress to the next stage.  All four playoff games to date have resulted in sizeable wins for one side or the other.

With the Penguins also having won all four games in the regular season against the Flyers, it’s difficult to envisage anyway back for Dave Hakstol‘s team from here.  The Penguins has to be the tip to secure the win on the night and the series.

Pick: Philadelphia Flyers
