The NHL is back in action today as the Philadelphia Flyers will clash with the New York Islanders. The series is tied as the Flyers managed to win 5-4 to tie the series at 3-3. Therefore, this will be the 7th game and the decider about which team will go through.
Philadelphia Flyers Form
The Flyers were facing elimination until they rallied and showed their quality in the last two games. They managed to stay focused and fought their way in winning the last two games 4-3 and 5-4. Their main weapon has been the counterattacking and Kevin Hayes, James van Riemsdyk has been very effective in transition. They might not have the expected control of the puck but there were slightly better on the blue line in the last two games.
On the offensive side of the game, the Flyers score an average of 2.36 goals per game in the restart.
And on the defensive side of the ice, the Flyers are allowing only 2.28 goals per game in the restart. Also, the Flyers are average when it comes to penalty killing as they successfully navigate 78.6 percent of their shorthanded situations.
N.Y Islanders Form
The Islanders failed to reach their objective as they lost the last 2 games in a row. They lost on Tuesday’s 4-3 extra-session defeat with a 5-4 double-overtime loss at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto two days later. The last two games showed that the Islanders can score goals, but their defence was not up to the task. Therefore, they will need to reorganize at the back.
On the offensive side of the game, the Islanders are putting up an impressive 3.29 goals per game during the restart, which puts them solidly near the top of teams offensively.
And on the offensive side of the game, the Islanders have been stingy defensively as they allow just 1.86 goals per game so far in the playoffs.
It is the final game and it can go both ways. However, one thing that is for sure is that there will be lots of goals. Both teams will go all the way. The Flyers have the winning moment. And on the other side, the islanders have been scoring even in the last two defeats. Therefore, take N.Y to win this one.
