The Philadelphia Flyers need a win after splitting their last six games. The Flyers are averaging 2.6 goals and have scored 10 goals in their last three games.

The Islanders are 21-7 in their last 28 vs. Metropolitan and 0-5 in their last 5 games following a win. The Flyers are 7-3 in their last 10 home games and 0-6 in their last 6 games following a win. The Islanders are 4-17 in the last 21 meetings in Philadelphia and 16-37 in the last 53 meetings overall.
Neither team has had much success winning back to back games as of late, and the Islanders have been flat out brutal playing in Philly. I'll take the home team and the plus money.
