The New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers meet Sunday in NHL action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The New York Islanders need a win after losing three of their last four games. The New York Islanders are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 18.1 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Nelson leads New York with 15 goals, Nick Leddy has 24 assists and Mathew Barzal has 114 shots on goal. Defensively, the New York Islanders are allowing 2.3 goals per game and are killing 81.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Semyon Varlamov has given up 64 goals on 822 shots faced and Ilya Sorokin has allowed 34 goals on 404 shots.
The Philadelphia Flyers need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Philadelphia Flyers are averaging 2.9 goals per game and are scoring on 19.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Farabee leads Philadelphia with 15 goals, Jakub Voracek has 25 assists and James van Riemsdyk has 102 shots on goal. Defensively, the Philadelphia Flyers are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 73.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Carter Hart has allowed 20 goals on 192 shots faced and Brian Elliott has allowed 57 goals on 511 shots.
The Islanders are 0-4 in their last 4 road games and 17-7 in their last 24 overall. The Flyers are 1-4 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 2-6 in their last 8 overall. The under is 6-0-1 in Islanders last 7 overall. The over is 17-8 in Flyers last 25 overall. The Islanders are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The favorite is 60-22 in the last 82 meetings. The home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
The New York Islanders are coming off a subpar week, but they've still provided plenty of profit for bettors this season and they usually don't string together losses. The Philadelphia Flyers still can't get out of their own way due to a subpar defense and playing on the end of a back to back won't help things improve. The Islanders have also won four straight meetings against the Flyers this season. You can argue this price should be a lot steeper. I'll gladly side with the Islanders and the cheap price.
