HockeyIslanders fly high in Philly; Extend point streak to 14 by Chris Passarelli November 18, 2019 It wasn’t pretty but the New York Islanders still got the job done, defeating the Philadelphia Flyers on the road with a 4-3 shootout victory. The Saturday night game didn’t look great at first for the Islanders. Sean Couturier started off the scoring early with a goal just two minutes in. Ivan Provorov finished off the first period with a PP goal to put the Flyers up two.Thomas Greiss had a rare flub, letting Oskar Lindblom wrist one from far outside the slot and into the net. It was one of the rare goals this season that Greiss would like to have back. Regardless, this Islanders group is resilient as all hell.Anthony Beauvillier started off the scoring in the third period full speed ahead, beating Brian Elliott after a big rush down the left side of the ice. Mathew Barzal cut the lead to 3-2 with a PP goal after a beautiful Brock Nelson pass into the slot. Beauvillier got lucky with just two minutes left. He threw the puck at the net and it somehow careened off of Elliott and into the net.The Islanders were buzzing and although not much happened in overtime, they found a way to win again. Jordan Eberle and Mathew Barzal both scored in the shootout, and Thomas Greiss was 2-for-2 in saves to help get the Islanders the win.Once again, nothing is ever pretty with this team. They aren’t the 80’s Oilers, but they get the job done. All that matters at the end of the day is that they came away with two points. The theme over these past 14 games has been to get points, and so far they’ve answered the bell each and every game.
