The Philadelphia Flyers return home Thursday to host the New York Islanders.

Home, nasty home. The Philadelphia Flyers return to the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night to host the New York Islanders at 7 p.m. (CSN-PH). But for the Flyers, home hasn't always been where the heart is -- or at least, it hasn't been where the wins are.

If the season ended today, Philadelphia would qualify for the postseason with the Eastern Conference's sixth seed. But the Flyers -- who at 20-11-2 have more road wins than any other team in the conference -- sport a measly 14-10-2 record at the Wells Fargo Center, garnering more points at home than only two other NHL teams.

Thursday's outing against the Islanders is the first in a stretch during which the Flyers play three out of four at home. The Flyers concluded a four-game Western Conference road trip on Tuesday with a 1-0 loss to the San Jose Sharks.
