Sunday is the final tuneup game before the regular season, as the New York Islanders wrap up their preseason against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center (5 p.m., NHLN-US). 

The Islanders are 5-0-2 in seven preseason games and while the results don't officially count, there's been a lot to like from the Islanders camp. 

Defensively, the Islanders have allowed 10 goals over seven games, with Jaroslav Halak and Thomas Greiss stopping 118-of-121 shots collectively. Offensively, Mathew Barzal has impressed during training camp and leads the Islanders the team with six points (3G, 3A) in four games, including a three-assist night against Buffalo on Friday. 

Jordan Eberle and Anders Lee also scored their first goals of the preseason on Friday night as the top line looks to get rolling heading into the start of the season. 

Devon Toews was recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Saturday afternoon, likely giving the defenseman another preseason game after a solid camp. Toews plays three preseason games during camp, including a game at forward against the Flyers last Wednesday. 

The Flyers are 3-1-3 in the preseason, including a 1-1-1 record against the Islanders, as the teams met at Nassau Coliseum on Sept. 17 and played a pair of split-squad games on Sept. 20. The Islanders are 2-0-1 vs the Flyers in preseason.

Travis Konecny leads the Flyers with six points (3G, 3A) in six games, while captain Claude Giroux has four assists in four exhibition games. Check back for rosters closer to tonight's game.
