New York Islanders vs Philadelphia Flyers Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NHL Playoffs Game on Saturday September 5th, 2020.

 

Semyon Varlamov New York Islanders
19 W | 14 L | 0.914 SV%

Varlamov made 26 saves in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime loss to the Flyers in Game 6. The Islanders were the better team for much of the night -- Philadelphia had just seven shots on goal at the game's midway point -- but the Flyers were opportunistic on the few scoring chances they did generate.

It resulted in the first five-spot against Varlamov in the playoffs, and he's now given up nine goals on 63 shots (.857 save percentage) over the past two games.

Carter Hart Philadelphia Flyers
24 W | 13 L | 0.914 SV%

Hart made 49 saves in Thursday's 5-4 double-overtime victory over the Islanders in Game 6. Things got a little dicey for Hart and the Flyers when New York scored twice in the opening 3:06 of the second period to take a 3-2 lead.

However, Mathew Barzal's goal late in the period was the only other blemish on Hart's record the rest of the way despite the Flyers being thoroughly outplayed for much of regulation. Hart owns a tidy 2.17 GAA and .929 save percentage in his 13 playoff outings.

There's no denying the allure of a Game 7: an adrenaline-pumping opportunity, all eyes on them, winning, or going home that players have dreamed of since they were kids.

And among wrestlers in the Eastern Conference semifinals, it's safe to say that the team that tied the most in Game 7 is the Philadelphia Flyers.

When the puck falls in Game 7 between longtime rivals on Saturday in Toronto, the Flyers will look to complete their climb to the Conference Finals, while the New York Islanders will try to avoid the worst playoff meltdown of the year. history of the franchise.

The seeded Flyers, who were behind the best-of-seven 3-1 series, forced the deciding game with a double 5-4 overtime victory in Game 6 Thursday night.

Saturday night's winner advances to face the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference final, which begins Monday night in Edmonton.

Ivan Provorov's goal with 4:57 left in the second overtime was the Flyers' third in a streak for the Islanders after Scott Mayfield's stick broke when he was shooting from the blue line. It capped a game in which Philadelphia took a 2-0 lead in the first period, lost twice by one goal and was defeated 53-31. But Provorov's goal ensured none of that mattered.

The Flyers are looking to bounce back from a 3-1 deficit for the second time, and the first time since returning from a 3-0 deficit against the Boston Bruins in the 2010 conference semifinals.

The sixth-seeded Islanders would have undoubtedly seized the opportunity in Game 7 at the end of the regular season due to the March 12 pandemic, when New York City was mired on a seven-game losing streak and a point in advantage. last place in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

But a magical late-summer run that kicked the Islanders out of the franchise's first trip to the conference finals in 27 years threatens to end painfully.

The Islanders blew a two-game lead on a best-of-seven just once: in 1978, when New York won the first two games of a quarterfinal series against the Toronto Maple Leafs before losing the next four. .

On Friday, the teams that forced a Game 7 after losing 3-1 were 29-28 in the deciding game.

The availability of Flyers center Sean Couturier is unknown after missing Game 6 with an apparent lower body injury. Left winger Oskar Lindblom is ready to play again after seeing 5.30pm ice time Thursday in his first game since December, when he was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a form of bone cancer.
