The Philadelphia Flyers and New York Islanders meet Saturday in NHL action at the Nassau Coliseum.
The Philadelphia Flyers need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Farabee leads Philadelphia with 14 goals, Jakub Voracek has 22 assists and James van Riemsdyk has 86 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.6 goals per game and are killing 73.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 20 goals on 192 shots faced and Brian Elliott has allowed 47 goals on 418 shots.
The New York Islanders look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The New York Islanders are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 19.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Mathew Barzal leads New York with 13 goals, Nick Leddy has 24 assists and Jordan Eberle has 91 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Islanders are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 79.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Semyon Varlamov has given up 58 goals on 714 shots faced and Ilya Sorokin has allowed 26 goals on 292 shots.
The Flyers are 2-10 in their last 12 games as an underdog and 2-5 in their last 7 overall. The Islanders are 14-4 in their last 18 games as a favorite and 20-8 in their last 28 overall. The over is 19-7 in Flyers last 26 overall. The over is 5-2 in Islanders last 7 overall. The Flyers are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings in New York. The favorite is 58-22 in the last 80 meetings.
The Philadelphia Flyers haven't been able to get out of this funk and they're providing zero value in the underdog role. The New York Islanders are a team I've pretty much blindly backed the last couple of years and there's no point in stopping that betting theory, especially with them winning 20 of their last 27 home games. In the last two meetings this season, the Islanders have outscored the Flyers 8-2. I'll lay the reasonable price with the Islanders at home.
