The New York Islanders look for their second consecutive victory over the Philadelphia Flyers when the two meet on Wednesday for Game 2 of their NHL Eastern Conference semifinals best-of-seven series. The Islanders defeated the Flyers in Game 1 on Monday 4-0. Semyon Varlamov stopped all 29 shots he faced in net and Andy Greene scored for the first time during the playoffs in the last 10 years to help lead the Islanders to the victory.

Anthony Beauvillier is leading the Islanders in goals scored during the postseason with six. Left winger Josh Bailey is the leader in assists with eight and the leader in points with 10. Anders Lee is leading New York in penalty minutes with 11. In goal, Semyon Varlamov is 8-2 with a goals-against average of 1.50 and a save percentage of .941.

Philadelphia will look to get back on track following its shutout loss to the Islanders in Game 1. The Flyers were in the game until the third period after trailing just 1-0 through the first two periods. However, the Flyers shooters could not put any shot past Islanders netminder Varlamov. Carter Hart made 26 saves in net for the Flyers in the loss.

Right winger Jakub Voracek is leading Philadelphia in goals scored with four and in points with eight during the postseason. Center Kevin Hayes is the leader in assists with six. Voracek is also leading Philadelphia in penalty minutes with 20. In goal, Carter Hart is 6-3 with a goals against average of 1.86 and a save percentage of .938.
