The Islanders are in the City of Brotherly Love tonight to take on the Flyers. Philadelphia was playing pretty well through the month of November until a couple of losses this week. They fell to the Capitals on Wednesday night in the shootout, and the stunningly lost in regulation to the Senators last night in Ottawa.
Which brings me to my next point: the Flyers are on a back-to-back and had to fly back from Ottawa last night. The Islanders would be wise to take advantage of a tired opponent.
