The Flyers finally got the result to go with the process. Kevin Hayes scored two goals and Carter Hart made 23 saves in helping the Flyers snap their losing streak at 10 games with a 3-1 win over the New York Islanders on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
To avoid an 11th straight loss, the Flyers will need to find a way against the team they faced on Saturday in their 10th straight defeat. The New York Islanders are in town to complete a home-and-home.
The Flyers closed the preseason with a 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Islanders, as Noah Dobson scored with 7.3 seconds remaining in the extra session on the power play. The Flyers finished the preseason with a 1-4-1 record.
The only Flyer who needed to find the back of the net was Kevin Hayes. Hayes scored twice in the second period, including a power-play goal with 5:05 remaining. That proved to be the game-winner through the third period, as the Flyers claimed a 2-1 win over the Islanders.
One day after trading Claude Giroux to Florida, it could be the final game for several other Flyers players, as the team plays the final game before the trade deadline on Sunday afternoon against the New York Islanders.
A goal midway through the third period was the difference for the Islanders, as the Flyers suffered the loss for the 13th straight game, setting a new franchise record in a 4-3 defeat on Tuesday night.
