    GAME NOTES
    Barry Trotz reckons himself a bit of an old school hockey guy and two things he likes are hostile barns and matinee starts. He's going to get both when the New York Islanders take on the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday (1 p.m., MSG+, SN).
    "I love the 1 o clock afternoon games, I like the atmosphere in Philly," Trotz said. "It's not friendly, just as the Coliseum is not friendly. You get hit with objects, you get people yelling at you. If you're not emotionally involved you're probably sleeping or you're dead, one of those two. It's a great environment, they've got a great team and it's a division game."
    Saturday's tilt is the first of a three-game Metropolitan Division road trip for the Islanders, who head to Carolina on Sunday and Pittsburgh on Tuesday. These are important games for the Islanders who haven't played a divisional opponent since beating the Hurricanes in their season opener.
    "For us it'll be a huge game. We have a big road trip here," Eberle said. "It's early in the season but we have to come out of this trip with some positive points and climb our way up the standings."
    The Islanders are looking to snap a two-game winless streak (0-1-1).


    ISLANDERS NOTES:

    -- Robin Lehner is expected to start on Saturday afternoon with Thomas Greiss starting Sunday in Carolina. Lehner is 2-2-1 this season with a 2.67 goals-against average, a .926 save percentage and a shutout. Lehner is 2-5-0 with a 3.18 goals against average and .897 save percentage lifetime against the Flyers.

    -- Anthony Beauvillier practiced on a line with Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle at Friday's practice. That was an effective trio for the Islanders last season and could be reunited for the first time this season. Read more at Isles Day-to-Day.

    -- The Isles are 4-2-2-in their last eight regular season games against the Flyers.

    -- Former Flyer Valtteri Filppula is making his first return to Philadelphia on Saturday. Filppula played 101 games for the Flyers over the past two seasons.


    FLYERS NOTES:

    -- The Flyers have lost two straight games and were shut out 3-0 by Boston on Thursday night.

    -- Michal Neuvirth will start in goal for the Flyers. Neuvirth is making his season debut. Neuvirth is 7-2-1 with a 1.76 goals-against average and .933 save percentage in 11 games against the Islanders.

    -- Jakub Voracek leads the Flyers with nine assists and 12 points.

    -- Wayne Simmonds leads the Flyers with six goals.

    -- Mikhail Vorobyev is expected to return to the Flyers lineup after missing four straight games.


    ISLANDERS PLAYER TO WATCH: JORDAN EBERLE/MATHEW BARZAL

    Jordan Eberle scored his first goal of the season on Wednesday, one-timing a feed from Mathew Barzal. Eberle has been reunited with Barzal for the past three games and is looking to re-ignite his scoring touch after posting 25 goals and 59 points last season. Eberle went 10 games without a goal to start last year, but finished the season with 25, so look for Eberle to heat up now that he's got number one.

    Islanders center Mathew Barzal scored four goals in four games against the Flyers last season, the most he had against any NHL team.

    FLYERS PLAYER TO WATCH: JAKUB VORACEK/CLAUDE GIROUX

    Jakub Voracek leads the Flyers with nine assists and 12 points to start the season. Voracek is one of the NHL's top playmakers, racking up the third-most assists (218) since the start of the 2014-15 season. Voracek looks to be building off a career-high 85 points last season. He has 29 points (5G, 24A) in 36 career games vs the Islanders.

    Flyers forward Claude Giroux has 49 points (17 goals, 32 assists) in 45 games against the Islanders, his most against any NHL team.

    New second line, Minus 15 between the three with the rest of the teams forwards even or plus?

    Possibly combining the three is a way to make 3 lines responsible defensively?...rather than just 2?

    Theres a real lack of bite in that line combo. Hopefully the chicken in the barnyard theory works here and no one catches them.

    I see two struggling teams. This should be a surprisingly exciting game.

    Keep an eye on Gudas today. No doubt he’ll be taking runs at people after Martin boarded Sanheim in the first preseason game. It was a pretty dirty play for a preseason game so expect a fight or two for sure.

    I will say that the talk on Barzal having a slow start is overblown. He hasn't been scoring goals, but he is still setting people up.

    LGI.

    I love these evening games for us europeans. Also wife and kid are not home so I got the house for myself. Only small negative is that I have to wake up at 5am for work. But I wont let it bother me or my beer.

    The Islanders absolutely must and SHOULD win this game today. There is no excuse, not being tired, not having injuries. Every opponent has been feasting on the Flyers. If we lose this game after losing to the also bad Panthers, it pretty much negates the wins over San Jose, Carolina and Los Angeles during the rough opening schedule. These are games we have to win if this team expects to be competitive this year.

    He putting up power play points but he's playing predictable, pass only. 7 shots in 8 games from your top line center is not good enough. Hopefully putting the band back together helps them all.
