The Philadelphia Flyers have not lost to the New York Islanders in 22 of their last 23 meetings, and on Thursday the Flyers look to continue their dominance when they visit the Isles in a Eastern Conference Atlantic Division match up (7 p.m. on COMCAST).

The Philadelphia Flyers look to continue their dominance over the New York Islanders Thursday, as they visit the Isles in a Eastern Conference Atlantic Division contest at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY. The Flyers (25-12-4, 54 points) have defeated the last-place Islanders (15-19-6, 36 points) in 22 of their last 23 meetings, including seven straight.

On Tuesday, Philadelphia downed another Eastern Conference cellar dweller, Carolina Hurricanes, 2-1, as center Sean Couturier netted goals in back-to-back games. However, the Flyers' top line -- Scott Hartnell, Claude Giroux and Jaromir Jagr -- have been held pointless in their last three.

Look for backup goaltender, Sergei Bobrovsky, to get the start Thursday, as he's 6-2-0 in his last eight games but is 6-0-0 with a 1.84 GAA against the Islanders.

Meanwhile, New York is coming off another victory over the Detroit Red Wings, who it has beaten in five of its last six meetings.

The Islanders, however, are just 9-9-3 at home this season.
