The New York Islanders face the New Jersey Devils at home this afternoon at 1 p.m., then host the Florida Panthers Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m.

The Devils won their first game out of the break, but their 63 points have them in a multi-team dogfight for a wild card spot, both of which currently are in the hands of the (new) Atlantic Division.

Expect the same youth-infused Islanders lineup as Thursday's overtime win.
