Anders Lee scores in return to lineup, Islanders blank Flyers

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Anders Lee, back this season after recovering from his ACL injury, scored to lead the New York Islanders to a 3-0 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in a preseason game in Bridgeport, Conn., on Tuesday night.

Lee, New York’s captain, tore his ACL in the Islanders’ 5-3 over the New Jersey Devils on March 11. He missed the rest of the 2021 regular season and the entirety of New York’s run to the Eastern Conference finals.
