Best Bet of the Day
NHL: New York Islanders ML vs Philadelphia Flyers
7:00 pm ET, ESPN+
This is an intriguing matchup because it will be new acquisition Bo Horvat’s first game as an Islander. It is clear New York has playoff aspirations, which means the Islanders have lots of work to do. Such a big acquisition should fire up New York, while Horvat will be keen to impress his new team. The Flyers should also have a hard time getting past a sturdy Islanders defense. Check out our full Islanders vs Flyers predictions.
