Brock Nelson is on a three-game point streak. Nelson kept the run going with an assist in the Islanders' 5-4 double overtime loss on Thursday. He has six goals and 12 points in 15 postseason games. Going into the 2020 playoffs, his career-high in postseason points for a single run was set in 2016 when he finished with five points in 11 contests.

Coach Alain Vigneault is uncertain if there will be lineup changes for Game 7 against the New York Islanders on Saturday. Sean Couturier was unable to play on Thursday in Game 6 after he left Tuesday's game following a collision with Mathew Barzal. Vigneault said the players will get treatment and they'll see who is ready to play.
Islanders vs. Flyers Game 7 Betting Prediction
The over is 14-3-1 in the last 18 meetings between these two teams but the under is the play tonight. The under is 12-4-2 in the Flyers’ last 18 games overall, is 11-2 in their last 13 games coming off a win and is 12-4-2 in their last 18 conference matchups. The lack of offensive firepower has been on display for most of this series and with this being a Game 7, I don’t see how these two teams play fast and aggressive. Expect another solid defensive performance by both teams, a couple of well-played games from the goaltenders and a cash for the under despite the low number of 5.
