Flyers vs Islanders Prediction Breakdown 

The Flyers come into this game on a five game winning streak and they have played very good defense in those five games, but they will be on the road where they are 5-3-1 this season. New York has lost seven of their last eight games, but they got the win to close out their road trip in Calgary and will look to start a winning streak here. The Islanders played much better in their final three games of the road trip, as they won one and lost two in overtime. New York is only 3-3-3 at home this year, but I like them in this game, as I don’t think Philadelphia can keep this pace up.
