The New York Islanders are in Philadelphia tonight in an important match up with the Flyers. The Broad Street Bullies sit three points ahead of the Islanders and are in control of the last playoff spot. However, the Islanders have three games in hand and win tonight would greatly increase their chances of making it to the big dance.
Also, in coaching news, Bob Mckenzie gives us some insight on the Isles coaching situation…
At this point in time, I do not believe NYI will be asking BOS for permission to talk to Julien. Of course, that may be subject to change.
