Islanders 3, Flyers 1: More dying than flying

First period

Brian Elliott ceremoniously welcomes the preseason with an audible fart on a Thomas Hickey point shot as the Islanders jump out to a 1-0 lead early. Remember, these games are much like the points on Whose Line is it Anyways, and while they don’t count, it didn’t make this duck from the point any better for the veteran backstop.

Armed with a virtual lock at a top-six role on defense, Philippe Myers did his best to get the Hickey goal back with some sweet maneuvers in the Islanders zone but couldn’t stuff home the wrap-around attempt after the superb individual effort you see below.
