New, comments

The Islanders didn't do well in Dallas. They're also a much better team at home.

The last time the New York Islanders and the Dallas Stars squared off against one another, the Islanders had their worst offensive game of the year as they got blitzed by a score of five to nothing. They'll look to avenge that loss and move back into second place in the crazy Metropolitan division tonight back in Brooklyn. The difference between the Islanders performance at home versus on the road is bordering on the inexplicable and hopefully tonight brings better results than what they saw in Dallas.

Johnny Boychuk is back in tonight's game and Dennis Seidenberg draws out. The forwards will remain the same. Jaroslav Halak will be in net for tonight's game he'll face Kari Lehtonen for Dallas.

Tonight's game will be aired on MSG+. The puck drops at 7:05.
