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.
