(Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Flyers will try to pick up their first victory in November when they welcome the New York Islanders to the Wachovia Center tonight.

The Flyers' last win came on October 30 against Chicago, but the club is 0-3 since the calendar flipped a page. Philadelphia is off to the worst-ever start in club history at 3-10-1 and its seven points are the fewest in the NHL.

Philadelphia was in action on Monday night in Toronto and was handed a 4-2 loss. Andrew Raycroft stopped 40 shots and Nik Antropov's third-period goal proved to be the game-winner for the Maple Leafs.

The Flyers fell to 2-4 under new head coach John Stevens, who ascended to the job after Ken Hitchcock was fired late last month.

Antero Niittymaki stopped 28 shots in the loss and Ben Eager notched Philadelphia's only goal of the contest.
