The Islanders have been good lately. The Dallas Stars have not. The Stars learned this first hand a few weeks ago. The Islanders no doubt remember and better be ready for a fight. Flip the tables over and bar the door.

FIG Picks for tonight's game should be filed here. It's a 6 p.m. start go get 'em in early.
