The Nashville Predators and the Philadelphia Flyers will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Wells Fargo Center.

ABOUT THE PREDATORS (3-2-1): Defenseman Roman Josi returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing three games with a lower-body injury and contributed two points along with a game-high seven shots on net. “Good to be back,” Josi told reporters. “Obviously every time you’re hurt, you miss playing with the guys and being on the ice for games. It felt good to be back, and more importantly we got the win.” Arvidsson and fellow forward Scott Hartnell owns three goals apiece while defenseman P.K. Subban boasts seven points (four on the power play) to sit second on the team behind Forsberg (nine).

ABOUT THE FLYERS (4-2-0): Gostisbehere, who struggled last season while registering 39 points and a minus-21 rating in between healthy scratches, has gotten off to a strong start with a goal, nine assists with a plus-4. Jakub Voracek (498 career points) is tied with Gostisbehere for the team lead in points with 10 assists and captain Claude Giroux has warmed to his new position on the wing with four goals and five assists. Power forward Wayne Simmonds boasts a team-high five goals and sits two assists shy of 200 for his career, but is bothered by a groin injury and his status for the Nashville contest is uncertain.

Oddsmakers opened the Flyers as -129-moneyline favorites versus the Predators, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Philadelphia Flyers have been one of the top surprises of the early NHL season and will have a chance to avenge one of their two losses Thursday night when the Nashville Predators pay a visit. The Flyers dropped a 6-5 decision at Nashville on Oct. 10 after coughing up a two-goal lead in the third period, but have responded by scoring 13 goals in their last two contests to open a five-game homestand.

“We’re confident,” said Philadelphia defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, who had a goal and an assist in a 5-1 win over Florida on Tuesday. “We’re riding high, but we have to keep an even keel and keep going.” The Flyers entered Wednesday second in the league in goals per game (4.33) and face a Nashville team that owns points in four straight contests (3-0-1) after a solid 4-1 home victory over improving Colorado. “We’ve gotten better and better,” Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson told reporters. “That’s a big thing. Now we’ve got to go on the road and try to win some games, too.” Forward Filip Forsberg has led Nashville, which is 0-2-1 on the road, during the point streak by recording four goals and four assists – two and one, respectively, against Philadelphia – while keying a power play that is 8-for-28 on the season.

Philadelphia won its last outing, a 5-1 result against the Panthers on October 17. Bettors who backed the Flyers at -133 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (6) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Nashville was a 4-1 winner in its last match at home against the Avalanche. They won as favorites, while the total score of 5 made winners of UNDER bettors.
