The Flyers grabbed a 2-1 advantage only 46 seconds in to the second on a Michael Raffl tally before New York scored on the power play once again off the stick of Johnny Boykin at 7:13. The Isles took their first lead at 11:05 when Joshua Ho-Sang lit the lamp.
Philadelphia came right back to even the score 3-3 with Jacub Voracek scoring at 13:54 for a back and forth four goal second. Both defenses stiffened up in the third before Josh Bailey scored the winner for New York at 0:32 of OT. Brian Elliott stopped 35 shots for Philadelphia and Thomas Greiss recorded 35 saves to get the win as the Flyers dropped number six in a row.

Road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings and Islanders are 6-20 in the last 26 meetings in Philadelphia and Islanders are 13-40 in the last 53 meetings.
The Flyers are not able to sustain a consistent attack and can’t buy a win but if they are to win one this would be it…
