FLYERS (22-19-6) at ISLANDERS (19-17-8)
6 p.m. ET; MSG+, CSN-PH, NHL.TV
Flyers team scope
The Philadelphia Flyers returned after their five-day break and lost 4-1 at home to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. "A little bit of rust," forward Jakub Voracek said. "I think you could see it on the power play. A couple bad bounces. … You have to go game by game. Obviously, it is not the spot we want to be in. We are having a bad run right now but, when you play back to back you have a chance to redeem yourself. Forget about today and win tomorrow." Philadelphia is 3-9-3 in its past 15 games since winning 10 in a row. The Flyers out-attempted the Devils, 85-48 and outshot them, 36-32. "I think we all felt pretty fresh tonight," said rookie Travis Konecny, who scored in the first period. "We felt good yesterday. It was a good time for us and we can still build on some positives from [the game]. We have an opportunity for us to do some good [Sunday]. That is the good thing about hockey; you always have another game to redeem [yourself]. We have spurts when we see what we are doing right. We just have to play that full 60 [minutes]."
Islanders team scope
The New York Islanders are likely to have forward Cal Clutterbuck and defenseman Johnny Boychuk back in the lineup. Clutterbuck has missed the past three games with a lower-body injury and Boychuk the past two with an upper-body injury. Goaltender Thomas Greiss will be trying for his third consecutive shutout. He was in goal for the Islanders' 4-0 road win against the Boston Bruins on Monday and a 3-0 win against the visiting Dallas Stars on Thursday. Jean-Francois Berube played Saturday in a 4-2 win against the Los Angeles Kings at Barclays Center. New York will go for its fourth straight win and third in a row under coach Doug Weight, who took over after Jack Capuano was fired on Tuesday. Weight knows playing on back-to-back nights will be a challenge. "[The players] going to be tired [Sunday]" he said after the win against the Kings, "but Philly had a game [Saturday], they had the five-day break. It's nothing different than usual. ... I tried to manage it as well as I could. We had four lines really going at it tonight, playing hard, and I kept turning the door so credit to those guys. We got some great contributions from [Alan Quine's] line, [Brock Nelson] went up against [Jeff] Carter most of the night and he's got [Anthony Beauvillier] and [Ryan Strome] on the wings with him, offensive guys but you've got to do it. It's not going away. It's not going to get easier. It's good to see these guys step up."
