James van Riemsdyk to Score a Point (-106, SugarHouse)

This may be the game to watch tonight, as the Flyers’ offense comes in averaging nearly five goals (the most per game in regulation) and is facing a Canucks team that has not put anything together this year. The Flyers have been efficient with their opportunities, as they rank 30th in Corsi-for and just 18th in shots. These numbers are a sound representation of what James van Riemsdyk has done in limited ice time most seasons. For his career, van Riemsdyk has averaged just 15 minutes but north of 0.5 points per game.

As usual, van Riemsdyk finds himself on the top power play as he normally does, facing a penalty kill in the bottom third of the league in every category imaginable. The Canucks have also struggled five-on-five, and with both teams being so poor defensively, there will be goals to be had. And if there are, van Riemsdyk is likely to be involved.
