The New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers are set to square off in a matinee game. The Islanders are finally coming off of a loss in a back-to-back after falling to the Washington Capitals by a score of three to one. The Islanders were flat in that one and will need to pick up the pieces here today.
It looks like Andrew Ladd and Thomas Hickey are once again out. Tom Kuhnhackl was in for Ladd on line three. In addition to that, Ross Johnston was lined up with the fourth line. Hopefully the Islanders aren’t playing down to their opponents as the Flyers have been much better behind Scott Gordon than they had been with Dave Hakstol.
Game time is at 3:00 P.M. E.S.T.
