The Philadelphia Flyers season continues to hang over their heads this week as every point is needed to catch the Boston Bruins. 

Philly currently sits 5 points behind the 4th place Boston Bruins with the Bruins holding 2 games in hand. 

The New York Islanders are expected to have their acquisitions from last night in the lineup, Kyle Palmieri and Travis Zajac, so it'll definitely be a test against the Islanders who have won 3 in a row. 

Head coach Alain Vigneault announced a couple of changes for tonight. 

Carter Hart jumps in the crease as he'll get the start against Ilya Sorokin. Hart gave up three goals on 25 shots against the Bruins on April and was tagged with the loss. 

Vigneault also said that he hasn't been happy with Phil Myers play recently and he'll watch tonight from the press box while Robert Hagg jumps back into the lineup. 

Up front AV has shuffled a couple of his lines as Scott Laughton will play with Kevin Hayes and Joel Farabee while Michael Raffl lines up with Nolan Patrick and Nicolas Aube-Kubel. 

Here's a full look at tonight's lineup:

James van Riemsdyk -- Sean Couturier -- Oskar Lindblom
Scott Laughton -- Kevin Hayes -- Joel Farabee
Travis Konecny -- Claude Giroux -- Jakub Voracek
Michael Raffl -- Nolan Patrick -- Nicolas Aube-Kubel

Ivan Provorov -- Justin Braun
Travis Sanheim -- Robert Hagg
Samuel Morin -- Shayne Gostisbehere
