Flyers Vs. Islanders: Philadelphia Host New York, Trying To Avoid Three-Game Skid

The Philadelphia Flyers host the New York Islanders Tuesday night (7 p.m. on COMCAST) at the Wells Fargo Center.

The Philadelphia Flyers will look to avoid a season-high three-game losing streak Tuesday, as they host the New York Islanders in a Atlantic Division contest at the Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. on COMCAST). The Flyers (30-16-6, 66 points) also will try to continue their recent dominance over the Islanders (21-22-8, 50 points), who has lost 13 of their last 14 games in Philadelphia.

Over the weekend, the Flyers dropped back-to-back games against visiting New Jersey Devils, 6-4, and then at the New York Rangers, 5-2, respectively. Philadelphia recent skid, 3-3-2 in last eight games, will need to be stopped if it like to catch the first-place Rangers, who have a five-point lead in the Atlantic Division.

Meanwhile, the Islanders did snap a 13-game losing streak at the Wells Fargo Center on Jan. 19 and used that victory to put together a streak of winning three of their last six games. The run isn't good enough to get the Islander into the playoffs but is a positive sign to their fanbase that the future could be better.

New York will be without defenseman Travis Hamonic Monday, while the Flyers will see the return of forward Danny Briere.
