Game 50 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ New York Islanders

Philadelphia Flyers (25-19-5) @ New York Islanders (19-24-7), 1:00pm, CSN-Philly/MSG Plus The Philadelphia Flyers may have won two of their last three games and currently be on a three-game point streak, but they need to improve their starts to games if they want to keep gaining ground in the Metropolitan Division. Although they beat the New York Islanders 6-4 in the first game of their home-and-home on Saturday night, the Orange and Black didn’t play good for the first 40 minutes.

The Edmonton Oilers took part in a pair of trades this week, as they changed their look in the crease and added more grit to their lineup. What this means to your fantasy team is that there are a few more goalies who might be impactful to your team and a bottom-six forward who might see more ice time due to his change of scenery.

Game 48 Preview: Nashville Predators @ Philadelphia Flyers

Nashville Predators (20-21-7) @ Philadelphia Flyers (24-19-4), 7:00pm, CSN-Philly/FS-TN After missing the last two games due to being a healthy scratch, Steve Downie is back in the lineup as the Philadelphia Flyers host the Nashville Predators tonight. Whether Crag Berube’s decision to bench the forward will help his value to the team or not will be seen tonight, as Downie is expected to be on the fourth line with Chris VandeVelde and Adam Hall.

Game 47 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Buffalo Sabres

Philadelphia Flyers (23-19-4) @ Buffalo Sabres (13-26-5), 7:30pm, NBCSN/CSN-Philly/TSN After a pair of rough contests over the weekend, the Philadelphia Flyers are hoping that they’ll be able to rebound tonight against the Buffalo Sabres. Tonight should equate to a win for the Orange and Black, but a loss could put the Flyers in a World of hurt.

If it wasn’t for one of Steve Mason’s worst starts of …
