    Flyers vs. Islanders: Live stream, storylines, game time and more

    The Flyers are hoping some home cooking can serve as the remedy for their sudden scoring troubles.

    Sparking the offense will not come easily Saturday when the Flyers (10-6-3) host the Islanders (13-3-1).

    Let's get into the essentials:

    When: 7 p.m. ET with Flyers Pregame Live at 6:30 p.m. ET
    Where: Wells Fargo Center
    Broadcast: NBC Sports Philadelphia
    Live stream: NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com and the NBC Sports MyTeams app

    • The Flyers' goal-scoring difficulty crept up rather quietly because the team was playing well, beating quality clubs and on a seven-game point streak.

    The issue became much more recognizable when the point streak was halted Friday night by a 2-1 loss to the Senators (see observations).

    After scoring 3.27 goals per game over their first 15 games, the Flyers have put up just 1.50 in their past four. They've lost two straight games, scoring only one goal in each outing.

    • Why won't it get any easier?

    Because Barry Trotz and the Islanders are in town. New York is on a 13-game point streak (12-0-1) and allowing just two goals per game during that stretch. Overall, the Islanders surrender the NHL's fewest goals per game at 2.29.

    However, New York has played only five road games - the fewest in the NHL - compared to 12 home games. The Flyers have earned at least a point in eight of nine home games (6-1-2) and are scoring 3.67 goals per game at home.

    • Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss, who is 7-1-0 with a 1.88 goals-against average and .942 save percentage, doesn't have great career numbers against the Flyers: 6-4-2, 3.35 GAA, .897 save percentage.

    • Playing a back-to-back set, the Flyers did not skate this morning, so it's uncertain how the lineup will look exactly.
