Islanders Vs. Flyers: Philadelphia Players Say They Were Outworked

The Philadelphia Flyers fell 4-1 to the New York Islanders on Jan. 19. Matt Read and Kimmo Timonen of the Flyers say they were outworked by the Islanders (via CSN Philly).

Read said the Islanders' "smart guys" took advantage on the penalty kill and were reading the passes of the Flyers, who were "complacent."

Timonen said that the Islanders were better yesterday in every aspect of the game, also stating "they skated better. They wanted it more." Timonen also said these types of games happen with a long season like the NHL has, but he isn't sure why. "We have to refocus and move on," he concluded.

Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette called the effort "unacceptable." He pointed to the first two periods to make his point. The Flyers were down 2-0 going into the third period of the game.

Flyers Vs. Islanders Finals Score: Philadelphia Finally Loses At Home, Falls 4-1 To New York

The Philadelphia Flyers stepped onto ice at the Wells Fargo Center having won 13 straight at home over the New York Islanders. They left the ice in disappointment, however, unable to sneak the puck Evgeni Nabokov despite 41 shots on net.

Sergei Bobrovsky struggled, letting in four goals off of 27 total shots. The Islanders' second goal came off of a Kimmo Timonen turnover that was picked up by Josh Bailey at center ice. Unchallenged on the breakaway, Bailey beat Bobrovsky in the top-right corner of the net for a shorthanded goal. The Isles went up 3-0 on a Mark Streit slapshot in the third period before Matt Read finally put the Flyers on the board with less than 10 minutes to go in the game.

The loss was only the Flyers' third in their last 30 meetings against the Islanders. They are on the road to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday and at home against the Boston Bruins on Sunday before taking a week off for the NHL All-Star Game.
