We saw a defensive battle in the first period of game 4 as they went into the 2nd period tied 0-0. The Islanders scored in the 2nd, yet the Flyers wouldn’t go away as they tied it back up in minutes. Then the 3rd period came, and the Islanders closed it out with 2 goals to take a 3-1 lead, even though the Flyers scored in the last minute to make it 3-2, it just wasn’t enough.
It was a pivotal game that the Flyers needed to win, but they couldn’t quite get it done. The Islanders played terrific 5v5 hockey and they limited penalties again. Both teams only had 1 power play all game, and the Flyers clearly struggled to find the back of the net.
Game 5 should be the same story, a low scoring affair that each team will have to grind out a low scoring victory. However, if you keep playing this style of hockey, the Islanders will certainly have the advantage. The Flyers will need to switch up some lines or play some faster hockey to switch up the tempo and try to shake up the Islanders.
New York Islanders vs Philadelphia Flyers Game 4 Prediction
I said it in my last article, and I will keep saying it until they fix it. The Islanders are being disrespected on the sportsbooks. You have a team clearly dominating each series that they are in, yet in a closeout game up 3-1, they are still -118 on Draftkings. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, and the Islanders are far from broke. Take the money line and possibly sprinkle some on the puck line.
