(9/20/17) The Flyers drop the away game at the Barclay's Center against the Islanders, 3-2. Flyers goals scored by Travis Konecny and TJ Brennan, and Islanders goals scored by Devon Toews, Johnny Boychuk, and Andrew Ladd.
I wasn't able to watch this specific game, so I have no complaints. It appears that a lot of New York's veterans were playing at home, so this loss isn't terrible.
As for the game at the PPL Center in Allentown, the Flyers defeat the Islanders 3-2 in OT! Flyers goals scored by Taylor Leier (2) and Shayne Gostisbehere with the OT winner, and Islanders goals scored by Mathew Barzal and Anders Lee.
I DID watch this game, and I must say that I was impressed by Leier, Nolan Patrick, and Gostisbehere. Gostisbehere definitely looked like himself out there, Leier was shining with two skilled goals, and Patrick had an amazing game-winning assist. I can't wait to see them play again soon, because there is certainly an exciting future here.
The Flyers preseason record is now 1-1-1.
Next game is tomorrow night against the Boston Bruins, puck drop at 7. The venue is TD Garden. Be sure to keep an eye out for those impressive prospects and competitive battles for spots!
