Take-Two, Gm. 32: Islanders vs. Flyers, Lines & Notes

Published

on

New York Islanders Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson, Oliver Wahlstrom and others celebrate Nelson's goal in win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday

The New York Islanders (12-13-6) are back in action Tuesday for the second of a back-to-back against the Philadelphia Flyers (13-18-7). The Islanders took the first meeting as they beat the Flyers 4-1 on Monday night at UBS Arena.

The Islanders got depth scoring in the win, as Brock Nelson and Anthony Beauvillier scored along with a pair of fourth-lines in Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin. Islanders netminder Ilya Sorokin was the player of the game as he stopped 26 of 27 in the win.

With the back to back, it is likely that Semyon Varlamov (2-6-1, 2.59 GAA, .917 SV%) gets the nod in goal for the Islanders, with Carter Hart (7-12-4, 2.94 GAA, .911 SV%) in between the pipes for the Flyers.

The New York Islanders, with a win Tuesday, have the ability to get back to “NHL .500”.

“I think once you get to the 500 mark, it allows you to look forward,” Islanders head coach Barry said Tuesday morning.  “Okay, we got back to even now, what do we do with the next fifty-odd games and that’s where we can focus on.”

“But we just have to focus on, you know, you say a game at a time. I think we got to focus on just a period at a time.”

The Philadelphia Flyers have lost eight games in a row and with the win on Monday, the Islanders now sit three points behind them with seven games in hand.
