If things look and sound familiar this Monday for the Flyers, well, that’s because they are familiar.

Peter Laviolette’s club went into the weekend ranked 11th, just two points out of the eighth and final playoff seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Flyers emerged all the worse for it, dropping to 12th and five points behind the New York Islanders.

For more than a month now, the eighth seed has been rotating around between the Islanders, Rangers and Devils, with the Flyers watching from below.

And it so happens, the Islanders are Tuesday’s opponent in Uniondale, N.Y.

The last time these two teams met on March 28 at Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers blew a 2-0 lead and lost in the shootout, 4-3.

It was a valuable point lost in the standings.

“We thought we had it in the bag the last game we had against them and they turned it on,” Scott Hartnell said.

“I think this is a little bit of a wakeup call. We might have thought maybe it was too easy. We're just win out and things will be all great here. We gotta take it as a wakeup call to get back at practice and get focused again and get up for the Islanders.

“We've had some success against the Islanders in the past, especially on Long Island. So we've got to stay positive and not get too down. Play 60 minutes. That's what we did the last four games and [against Winnipeg] we didn't.”

The Flyers played a wretched game Saturday in Winnipeg. The Jets had lost five straight yet won easily, 4-1, doing all their scoring in a dominant second period.
