The Flyers three-game winning streak was snapped by the Islanders on Sunday night in a game that was more lopsided than the score indicated. The 5-3 loss wasn't pretty, especially following a dramatic win the night before.

The Flyers have had their share of dramatic finishes against Tuesday night's opponent of late. Last season, the Flyers won their first two games against the Penguins in overtime, rallying from a 3-1 deficit to win the 2019 Stadium Series in Philadelphia in overtime, 4-3, and scoring a goal in the final minute of the third period to tie the game before winning in the final seconds of overtime, 2-1, in Pittsburgh just a couple weeks later.

The two teams meet for the first time in the 2019-20 season on Tuesday. Puck drop is at 7 p.m.

Travis Konecny has points in nine of the Flyers 10 games so far this season. He's been all around the net, into the dirty areas and displaying the shot of a sniper in the early season. For the Flyers to have success in Pittsburgh, it will be about speed and quick decisions with the puck, both areas where Konecny can be an asset.
Sidney Crosby has been on a bit of a cold streak. He has gone five straight games without a goal with just two points in that time, following a start where he had 12 points in the first seven games. For a player of Crosby's level, it probably means he's due, and his career numbers against the Flyers are outstanding with 41 goals and 58 assists for 99 points in 67 career games.
