Philadelphia vs. NY Islanders,
03/03/2019 15:00 EDT,
Score: 4 - 1
Money Line: -148 NY Islanders
This is an 8* play on the New York Islanders.
The Flyers had been one of the league's hottest teams in January and February, but they come into today's game in New York as losers of three of six. They sit seven points out of a playoff spot, and they dealt Wayne Simmonds at the trade deadline. There isn't a lot left to prove for Philly at this point in the season. The Isles on the other hand are in a heated battle for first place in the Metropolitan Division, tied with Washington at 81 points. Starting goaltender Robin Lehner ranks 1st in the NHL in goals against average, and second in save percentage. The Flyers have used an NHL record eight goalies this season, and veteran Brian Elliott is expected to get the start today. The Islanders are 8-2 in their last 10 games as a home favorite.
