Coach Barry Trotz has been furious with the lack of effort and focus from his club during this losing streak.

Now, with a Philadelphia team coming off back-to-back road wins against New Jersey, things won’t get any easier for the Long Island Hockey Club in this matchup tonight.

Bets We Like With a Flyers Win

Claude Giroux OVER 2.5 Shots on Goal (-104, DraftKings)

In order for the Flyers to earn a win here tonight, they will need to continue getting offensive production from their top line forwards. The 33-year old captain scored last time out against the Devils on just one shot. He will need to get more chances against this defensively-oriented Islanders squad this evening. The guess here is that Giroux generates some extra looks tonight.

Bets We Like With an Islanders Win

Islanders Team Total OVER 3 Goals (+133, DraftKings)

This Islanders team has struggled to generate consistent offense, going back to the middle of last season. Barry Trotz has called out the effort and focus of this club and I expect the Islanders to rise to the occasion and net some goals early.

They will have to really play hard to top the offense of the Flyers, but if they can score at least three in this game, they will have a puncher’s chance at earning two points in the end.

 

Bets We Like Independent of the Outcome

Full Game OVER 5.5 (-104, DraftKings)

The Flyers have been cashing over tickets left and right this season, going 6-2 over their first eight games. The Flyers have also cashed overs to the tune of a 14-5 mark over their last 19 meetings with the Islanders, a team that desperately needs to get its offense rolling in this contest. I expect to see a frantic pace for most of this game, leading to a lot of scoring chances.

 

Islanders vs. Flyers Prediction

These two teams are going in opposite directions right now, with the Isles struggling offensively and the Flyers scoring often. I like Philadelphia to win in a tightly contested battle by the score of 5-3.
