The now slumping New York Islanders face an also slumping Detroit Red Wings team as both look to right their ships prior to the playoff start. Both teams would have to really fall apart to miss the playoffs entirely, but nobody wants to go in slumping or have to face tougher competition on the road.
The Islanders have lost their last seven at home and will look to give to give the coliseum faithful something to cheer about. Jaroslav Halak will be in net for the Islanders while Petr Mrazek dons the mask for the Red Wings. Both teams played last night. Will this finally break the Islanders home losing streak?
