NY ISLANDERS: LAST SEASON: 35-37-10, 80 points. Seventh in Metropolitan Division.
COACH: Barry Trotz (first season, 20th NHL season).
ADDED: F Leo Komarov, F Valtteri Filppula, F Tom Kuhnhackl, F Jan Kovar, G Robin Lehner, D Luca Sbisa.
LOST: F John Tavares, D Calvin de Haan, G Jaroslav Halak.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Mathew Barzal. The reigning Calder Trophy winner as the league's top rookie will be looked on to fill a bigger role with Tavares' departure. Barzal led the team in scoring last season with 85 points (22 goals, 63 assists). After playing on the second line with Jordan Eberle and fellow youngster Anthony Beauvillier a year ago, Barzal is expected to lead the top line with Beauvillier and Josh Bailey.
OUTLOOK: The Islanders have made just three playoff appearances in the last 11 seasons, missing out by 17 points last season after finishing with 30 losses in their final 45 games (15-24-6). The regression cost general manager Garth Snow and
COACH Doug Weight their jobs, replaced by three-time champion executive Lou Lamoriello as president of hockey operations and Trotz ' who led Washington to the Stanley Cup title. The change in leadership has brought new optimism for the future, though experts expect another playoff miss.
PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 42-26-14, 98 Points. Third in Metropolitan Division.
LOST to Pittsburgh Penguins in first round of Eastern Conference playoffs.
COACH: Dave Hakstol (fourth season, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: F James van Riemsdyk, D Christian Folin.
LOST: F Matt Read, D Brandon Manning.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Nolan Patrick. The Flyers bet their future on the 20-year-old Patrick when they made the center the No. 2 pick of the 2017 draft. Patrick had been bothered by a variety of injuries and but didn't need offseason surgery for the first time since 2015. Patrick's ice time jumped late in the season and he could blossom into a star this season paired on a line with James van Riemsdyk, a 36-goal scorer who signed a $35 million, five-year contract. On a team that still counts on the veterans for the bulk of the scoring, Patrick's emergence would show the Flyers were right to start a rebuild.
OUTLOOK: The Flyers have won between 33 and 42 games each of the last five years, a streak of mediocrity that sometimes gets them in the playoffs and sometimes it doesn't. The Flyers would like to not have to wait until the final week of the season to qualify for a playoff berth but it's difficult to imagine they can approach 100 points this season.
Islanders look to regain form vs. Flyers

When March began, the New York Islanders were alone in first place in the Metropolitan Division with a slight lead over the Washington Capitals. Since then, things are not going well, especially in the last two games.

After shutout losses to Boston and Montreal, the Islanders hope to start ending a stretch of inconsistent performances Saturday afternoon when they visit the Philadelphia Flyers.

New York (42-25-7, 91 points) began this month with a two-point lead over Washington but quickly lost its grip on sole possession of the division. The month began with a 3-1 loss to Washington and it began a 5-6-0 stretch that has seen the Islanders lose by three or more goals four times.

Two of those instances were a 4-1 loss and a 5-2 defeat on home ice March 3 and March 9 to Philadelphia. The other two were Thursday's 4-0 loss in Montreal that was preceded by a 5-0 home loss to Boston two days earlier.

"The last six periods, we've been badly outplayed," New York defenseman Thomas Hickey said. "I think we all have to find a little bit more juice."

Thursday's loss kept the Islanders three points behind. It is possible they could begin Saturday four or five points out if Washington gets an overtime loss or a win over the Minnesota Wild.

The Islanders gave up three goals in the second period Thursday and allowed two in the middle period Tuesday. During the last 10 games, the Islanders are getting outscored 16-5 and allowed five second-period goals to the Flyers in the two meetings on Long Island.

"We can't fall asleep at this time of the year," Islander center Casey Cizikas said. "It's unacceptable. This time, it's not ideal but eight games, you can do a lot in eight games. You can definitely turn the tide and find the momentum and build to where we were at."

The Islanders were 0-for-3 on the power play Thursday and are 1-for-25 on the man advantage this month and 1-for-31 in their last 13 games since Feb. 21.

Besides the power play woes, several players besides leading goal scorer Anders Lee (27 goals) are struggling to score.

Mathew Barzal leads the Islanders with 58 points but has not scored a goal in 16 games since Feb. 16, Josh Bailey is second on the team in points has not scored in 12 games since Feb. 26. Jordan Eberle totaled 59 points in his first season as an Islander but has 31 this season and has one goal in his last 20 contests.

Before this rough patch and being held to two goals or fewer seven times, New York vaulted into first place by going 22-7-3 from Dec. 17-Feb. 28.

Now besides being concerned with falling too far behind the Capitals, the Islanders are six points ahead of Montreal, which occupies the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. The Islanders are also tied with Pittsburgh for points and four points ahead of Carolina.

Philadelphia (36-30-8, 80 points) is among the teams trying to get one of the wild card spots and sits five points behind Montreal.

Since the last meeting with the Islanders, the Flyers are 3-3. They are 12-7-2 since winning eight straight from Jan. 14-Feb. 4.

The Flyers are 5-5-1 in their last 11 home games and return to Philadelphia after getting a 3-1 win at Chicago on Thursday when James van Riemsdyk scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period and rookie Carter Hart made 40 saves.

Van Riemsdyk and Hart are among the reasons the Flyers remain alive in the playoff race. Van Riemsdyk has 11 goals in his last 13 games and 20 in his last 31 while Hart has allowed three goals on 117 shots in his last three games.

"It's crunch time right now, but we're just coming to the rink every day and just worrying about our group and everything that's going on in here," Hart said. "All that excess noise, we can't control any of that. We can't control how other teams are playing or any of that."

The visiting team has won each meeting this season. Before getting outscored 9-3 three weeks ago on Long Island, the Islanders rolled to a 6-1 win in Philadelphia on Oct. 27 when Brock Nelson scored twice.
