The Edmonton Oilers (29-21-3) travel to meet the Philadelphia Flyers (16-26-10) Tuesday at Wells Fargo Center. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET (ESPN+). Below, we look at the Oilers vs. Flyers odds and lines, and make our expert NHL picks, predictions and bets.
The Oilers are coming off a tough 2-1 loss at the Carolina Panthers Sunday, but they have been playing better since Jay Woodcroft took over for Dave Tippett behind the bench. They’re 6-4 in the last 10 games and are within striking distance of a playoff spot.
Things haven’t been as rosy for the Flyers, who are last place in the Metropolitan division. They snapped a six-game losing skid with a 2-1 victory against the Washington Capitals Saturday.

Oilers at Flyers projected goalies
Mike Smith (5-7-1, 3.53 GAA, .893 SV%) vs. Carter Hart (10-16-6, 2.90 GAA, .911 SV%, 1 SO)
Smith has seesawed between three-game win streaks and long losing skids this season and has lost three in a row entering this contest. He was solid in February with a 3-5-0 record, a 3.35 GAA and an .889 SV%. He’s going to need his offense to continue rolling to start another win streak here.
Hart was great against the Caps, stopping 27 of 28 shots in the 2-1 victory. It was his first game after missing a week due to an eye infection. He was touched up for 5 goals in two of his five February starts, but performed well in the other three outings.
