ISLANDERS Vs FLYERS
Dave Covers Spreads, NHL FREE PICKS
The New York Islanders, who have turned their season around after starting slow, look to take care of a struggling Philadelphia Flyers in Wells Fargo.
Key Betting Trends:
- Islanders are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a favorite
- Over is 7-0 in the Islanders last 7 games following a win
- Flyers are 4-22 in their last 26 games after scoring 2 goals or less in their previous game
- Islanders are 8-0 in their last 8 meetings against the Flyers
The Islanders have been a surging hockey team in the last few weeks. They are 4-0-1 in their last 5 games, with their only lost coming in a shootout against the Capitals. In those 5 games they are scoring an average of 3.6 goals per game whilst only allowing 2.2 goals.
Expected Goaltender Ilya Sorokin is having another great season posting a record of 21-12-7 and save percentage of .926%. He is in a great stretch right now and is the key anchor behind the Islanders defense.
The Flyers have turned in their season and are already looking forward to next year. Most recently trading captain Giroux to the Panthers. The Flyers are 1-3-1 in their last 5 games scoring just 2.6 goals whilst allowing 4 goals per game.
Carter Hart is expected to be in the net for the Flyers and whilst he has serious talent he has been up and down all season long. His save percentage is currently sitting at .910% but he has allowed 13 goals in his past 3 starts.
I am loving the Islanders here, they are performing well and their hot offense will look to make light work of a weak Philadelphia defense.
Take advantage of a good Moneyline payout on the Islanders.
