The Philadelphia Flyers continued preseason game action last night with split squad games against the New York Islanders. Some Flyers played up in Brooklyn while others battled another Islander squad at the PPL Center in Allentown, the home of the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

The contest in the Lehigh Valley featured Shayne Gostisbehere and Nolan Patrick. It also went to overtime tied at 2 before Gostisbehere netted the game winner in the extra period.

The young guns talked after the game:

Looking ahead, the team faces the Boston Bruins Thursday night and then has a home-and-home against the New York Rangers on Sept. 25 and 26.
