Islanders vs Flyers game 6 start time, schedule

The Islanders vs Flyers game starts at 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT today (Thursday, Sept. 3). Full series schedule is below. 

It's almost time for the Islanders vs Flyers live stream of game 6, where the big question is simple: can Philly force another overtime? If so, the Islanders kinda become Cinderella, as the Flyers may be down 3-2, but those two wins were both in overtime (and those were the only OT games in the series). Yes, the Flyers could win without OT, but they haven't done so yet in this series.

So, with centerman Sean Couturier (who was out in game 5) questionable for game 6, Philadelphia will need to hope that Scott Laughton, Claude Giroux, James van Riemsdyk and Matt Niskanen can all find their luck again. Anything to stave off elimination.

All eyes will likely be on Laughton, who scored the winning goal on Tuesday night. If he's going to (again) take Couturier's place in the lineup, the team will likely need another heroic finish from the lefty. 

On the other side of the puck, the Isles did well (just not well enough) thanks to scores from Josh Bailey, Brock Nelson and Derick Brassard.
