The Flyers claimed Kieffer Bellows off waivers on Thursday, and he’ll make his debut with the team on Saturday night when they face the Carolina Hurricanes.
On the back end of a back-to-back, coming off a 9-0 drubbing, it was going to take something deep down for the Flyers to win this game. They got it from a line that was powered by their captain, and the goal came from their strongest player, one whose name was branded by an entire hockey community, city, and locker room.
It was difficult to find many positives out of this game, a 3-0 loss for the Flyers to the Islanders, and an injury to Travis Sanheim only added to it.
The Islanders dressed more veterans and that paid off early with a pair of power-play goals in the first, carrying the Islanders to a 3-0 win over the Flyers in Sunday’s preseason opener at Nassau Coliseum.
Oskar Lindblom picked up five points, including a hat trick, in the Flyers 6-3 win over the Islanders in a Rookie Game held in East Meadow, NY.
The Flyers and New York Islanders will face off once again in a prospects game at 6 p.m. in East Meadow, NY. The game will be live-streamed on the Islanders website.
