Thursday NHL Hockey: Flyers games have a lot of 3rd period goals and Boop's prop bet looks to profit

Flyers at Devils, 7 pm EST.

There have been exactly 100 games in the NHL so far this season and the Flyers have played in seven of them.

In those seven, there have been 49 goals scored (not counting the “goal” awarded to the winning team of a shootout, but don’t get us started on that).

Anyway, here is how those 49 goals in Flyers games break down:

> 11 . . . First Period
> 14 . . . Second Period
> 24 . . . Third Period

In case your math is bad, that says that almost 50% of the goals scored in Flyers games have come in the final 20 minutes of regulation.

And in case you were wondering, here are the league totals in non-Flyers games:

> 148 . . . First Period
> 191 . . . Second Period
> 189 . . . Third Period

Pretty much dead even for the second and third stanzas.

One last thing. Here are the game-by-game third-period goal totals in Flyers:

> 4
> 2
> 3
> 2
> 6
> 3
> 4

All of which leads us to a couple of Third Period Prop Bets at Draft Kings and William Hill.
