PHILADELPHIA – The streak continues, even if in an unlikely scenario.
But perhaps the bigger picture is that the Islanders, on a night when they didn’t get many of the bounces they’ve gotten during their 14-game point streak, were resilient enough to erase a three-goal deficit in the third period.
Anthony Beauvillier scored twice in the third period and the Islanders are now on a 13-0-1 run after a 4-3 shootout win over the Flyers on Saturday night at Wells Fargo Center.
