Flyers vs. Islanders 3/21/16 NHL Picks & Predictions

The Islanders will look to halt their three-game skid when they host the Flyers tonight but it won't be easy. The puck drops at 7:30PM ET tonight from the Barclays Center.

Bet Tonight's Flyers vs. Islanders Game

Philadelphia has been decent on the road this season, posting at 15-14-2 record to match its 34-24-5 record overall. New York has been excellent at home, going 21-8-3 at the Barclays Center and 38-23-4 overall.

The Flyers were dealt a blow yesterday when general manager Ron Hextall announced that goaltender Michal Neuvirth will miss the remaining three weeks of the regular season due to an unspecified lower-body injury. That means starter Steve Mason will have to shoulder the load for a Philadelphia team that is just three points back of Detroit for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The good news is that the Flyers are hot, winning 8 of their last 11 games overall and going 6-0 in their last six games playing on one day of rest. They've also won five of their last six games when their opponent scores two goals or less in their previous game and are 4-1 in their last five contests following a loss of three or more goals.
