New York Islanders Continue Playoff Push Against Flyers
Flyers – Hot
Michael Neuvirth – 1.6 GAA with .933 SV % over last 5 games. Unfortunately for them he’s day to day with an illness and Steve Mason will be starting tonight.
That is IT. It doesn’t help that the Flyers have been shut out in back to back games.
Flyers – Not
Jakub Voracek – 1 pt last 5 games for the team leader in points (45).
Claude Giroux – 1 pt last 5 games for the Captain and who is 2nd on the team in points (41).
Wayne Simmonds – 1 pt last 5 games for the 3rd scorer on the team (38).
Ivan Provorov – 20 yr old rookie held off the score sheet in the last 6 games.
Shayne Gostisbehere – 2 pts last 10 games. Back tonight coming off a healthy scratch.
Andrew MacDonald – The former Isles blueliner has 1 point in last 20 games with a 13 game pointless streak dating back to Jan 7. Not great for the 5th highest salary on the team (4.75 Mill this year).
