The Islanders are in Philadelphia tonight to battle the Flyers at Wells Fargo Center. The game will be broadcast on MSG Plus 2. The radio coverage will be on WRHU 88.7 FM and LI News Radio 103.9 FM.
Tonight is the night the Islanders could finally lock up a playoff spot. It will be the second time in the last three years that they have made it to the postseason.
When the Isles clinched a playoff spot in 2013, they did so in after losing 4-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes in the shootout.
Despite being a team that is eliminated from the playoffs, the Flyers are no pushovers. Philadelphia has picked up points in their last six games, which includes a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday.
The Islanders not only have a chance to capture a postseason birth, but they can also sweep the Flyers in a season series for the first time in franchise history. They will once again turn to Jaroslav Halak to guard the net.
Halak has started in all three previous wins for the Islanders. He has a 1.92 goals against average against the Flyers this year and a .912 save percentage.
The defense will remain the same for the Islanders and Michael Grabner and Colin McDonald will be in the lineup.
