After a disappointing season for the Flyers, they gave their fans a needed bolt of energy in the penultimate home game of the season. Twenty-three-year-old Noah Cates, in his fourteenth professional game, scored two goals and an assist. Twenty-two-year-old rookie Morgan Frost added a goal and an assist.
Kevin Hayes scored two second period goals to give the Flyers a 2-1 victory over the New York Islanders. Travis Konecny and Joel Farabee assisted on both goals. Carter Hart made 26 out of 27 saves to give him his fourteenth victory of the year. It was the first Flyers game since they traded their longtime captain, Claude Giroux.
