After suffering one of the most embarrassing and lopsided losses in recent history last night, the Flyers will have to try to find a way to beat a New York Islanders team that has won 11 of their last 13 games and is tied for first place in the east division.
Robert Hagg injured his shoulder in last night's game and will be out for 2-4 weeks. Instead of slotting Shayne Gostisbehere back into the lineup, Alain Vigneault is keeping Nate Prosser in the lineup for reasons unknown.
Flyers: 14-10-3 (31 points, 5th place) Islanders: 19-7-4 (42 points, 2nd place)
