PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Flyers might have to make due without their best player Saturday when they host the New York Islanders in the front end of a home-and-home series.

The Flyers are coming off a 5-3 win over Boston on Friday as leading scorer Peter Forsberg scored two goals and added an assist before leaving with a mild groin strain.

Philadelphia coach Ken Hitchcock said the injury was "not serious" and that Forsberg, who has eight goals and 31 assists this season, will play "if he feels pretty good."

Simon Gagne added his 21st goal of the season to tie Jaromir Jagr of the New York Rangers for the league lead. Defenseman Eric Desjardins and Michal Handzus also tallied for the Flyers, who are 10-2-2 at home this year.

The Islanders, who have already dropped their first two meetings with Philadelphia this season, is coming off their third loss in four games, a 6-2 setback vs. Ottawa on Friday.

Alexei Yashin and defenseman Alexei Zhitnik scored for the Islanders, who are 3-8-2 here since October 26, 2002.
