The Flyers have been a team we’ve profited on for most of the year, but they’ve also run into a buzzsaw in the New York Islanders in this round and as much as I like the Flyers and their grit and their young goaltender in Carter Hart, I just feel like this is the end of the line for the Flyers. New York’s done what they have done to Florida in the qualifiers and to Washington in the last round and they’ve just been very physical with the Flyers and neutralized any strengths that the Flyers had and make it a struggle for 60 minutes, and a struggle that the Flyers just haven’t been able to get past. I think the Islanders get the job done here and winning 7 of the last 8 against Philadelphia seals it for me. Give me the Islanders as my premium pick for this game.
