PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers tried to make their annual Halloween game a festive occasion — popular mascot Gritty judged the costume contests during intermissions — but the only boos came from disgruntled fans each time Philly skated off the ice.The Islanders‘ romp started early [url=]Womens Sven Andrighetto Jersey[/url] , and they seemed right at home against the listless Flyers.Brock Nelson scored two goals, Anders Lee had a goal and two assists and Robin Lehner stopped 22 shots to lead New York past Philadelphia 6-1 on Saturday.Leo Komarov and Anthony Beauvillier also scored to help the Islanders take a 3-0 lead through two periods in a game between teams near the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Nelson scored in the first and third periods in his third straight game with a goal.“It doesn’t always have to be goals, just chances,” Nelson said. “If you can feed off of that, you can suffocate teams.”The Islanders opened a three-game road trip. They play eight of their first 11 games on the road this season.The Flyers were loose with the puck, sagged on defense and stopped skating hard after pucks in the defensive zone. A playoff team last season, Philadelphia has lost three straight games and four of five overall.Coach Dave Hakstol remains on the hot seat in his fourth season, and the Flyers (4-7) await what could be a make-or-break four-game trip out West.Maybe a road trip will give a needed boost to a Flyers team that has already lost four home games.“We tightened up in this building [url=]Tyson Barrie Jersey[/url] ,” Hakstol said.The Islanders weren’t terribly impressive either, but they were efficient, scoring two goals on their first six shots and three on the first 12.Michal Neuvirth wasn’t much help in net in his first start since last year. Neuvirth was out with an unspecified injury and the Flyers got little production from Brian Elliott and Calvin Pickard in his absence.The Flyers coughed up the puck and Komarov capitalized with a tip-in for a 1-0 lead in the first. The Flyers had another turnover later in the period and Jordan Eberle fed Beauvillier for a 2-0 lead.Nelson made it 3-0 on a sweet 2-on-1 attack that stunned Neuvirth and pretty much sealed the win.“Our bounces are not going our way, but the season is long and we have to stick together,” Neuvirth said. “We’ve got a good team in here.”It’s hard to tell. The Flyers’ core of Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jake Voracek has done little to prove the franchise can ever become serious contenders and — with more games like this one — general manager Ron Hextall will have to decide if he wants to shake up the roster or make a move behind the bench. Or both.“I really feel like we’re pressing right now. We’re just tired of losing so we’re trying to do everything we can to make something happen, but sometimes it’s not always the right thing,” Giroux said.Adam Pelech made it 4-1 and Nelson had his first multigoal game of the season [url=]Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey[/url] , bringing out chants of “Fire Hakstol!”Jori Lehtera scored for the Flyers in their third straight game with one or fewer goals. Hakstol shuffled his lines all game and no combination worked.Lee made it 6-1 on a power-play goal that Neuvirth barely swiped at and the fans that stuck around could only boo.“We want to keep creating those opportunities,” Lee said. “The more chances we get, the more are going to go in. It kind of culminated tonight.”NOTES: Flyers C Corban Knight left with an unspecified injury.UP NEXTIslanders: Play Sunday at Carolina.Flyers: Open the road trip Tuesday at Anaheim. The Flyers also will play the Kings, Sharks and Coyotes. The Anaheim Ducks and New Jersey Devils got away from what they’d be doing in their most recent games. That wasn’t a bad thing for the Devils, who would like to maintain their current direction. The Ducks, on the other hand, hope to get back in their groove as soon as possible.Both teams will get a chance when they meet Sunday evening at Honda Center.The Devils (10-12-5) are coming off a 6-3 win at the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night, ending a six-game losing streak that dropped them into last place in the Eastern Conference.Article continues below ...New Jersey had two days in southern California to enjoy the win but now face back-to-back games at Anaheim and the San Jose Sharks on Monday.“It’s important for us to kind of hit the reset button again and get ready for the back-to-back coming up this weekend [url=]Artemi Panarin Jersey[/url] ,” New Jersey forward Kyle Palmieri said after the win in Los Angeles.The Ducks (15-11-5) came out flat against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes on Friday night and then were overrun in the third period of the 4-1 loss, ending a five-game winning streak.“Any time you have a lapse, it’s going to be frustrating,” Anaheim defenseman Josh Manson said. “You have to learn from it, come back (Saturday), we’ll have a good practice and be ready for Sunday.”The matchup between the Ducks and Devils will also mark the second return of New Jersey defenseman Sami Vatanen to Anaheim since he was traded to the Devils on Nov. 30, 2017, for forward Adam Henrique.Vatanen [url=]Cam Atkinson Jersey Kids[/url] , whom the Ducks selected in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Draft and made his debut with Anaheim in February 2012, had an assist in his first return to Honda Center, a 4-2 win by the Ducks on March 18.Henrique had a six-game point streak end in the loss to Carolina on Friday night, but he remains third on the team in points with 17.Palmieri also came up through the Anaheim organization. He was selected by the Ducks in the same draft as Vatanen but in the first round. Palmieri spent parts of four seasons in Anaheim before he was traded to the Devils on June 26, 2015, for second and third-round picks in the 2015 NHL Draft.Palmieri scored a career-high 30 goals in his first season with New Jersey. He’s on pace to break that mark, coming into the weekend with 14 goals in 27 games.Palmieri scored twice against the Kings on Thursday, ending a four-game road losing streak [url=][/url] , though the Devils are still just 3-10-1 away from home.Palmieri said road trips do have their way of bringing teams together.“You get away, your routine chances a little bit and it’s a fresh start. We’ve got to just focus on the game at hand,” Palmieri said. “You can’t worry about our road record this year, and you can’t worry about October or November. It’s something to build off, for sure.”
