Islanders beat Flyers on Leddy's OT goal

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- If the New York Islanders expect to return to the Stanley Cup playoffs, they will need to put some distance between themselves and a handful of other teams in the Metropolitan Division.

The Islanders did just that on Friday, completing a home-and-home sweep of the Philadelphia Flyers with a second straight overtime win.

"It's huge," Islanders defenseman Nick Leddy said after scoring 2:44 into overtime to give the Islanders a come-from-behind 5-4 win at the Wells Fargo Center. "It's a couple extra points that they don't get. Every game is so tight in the Metro division and we look at all the teams and they're all so close, so every point is huge."
