Five For Howling

The New York Islanders continue their road trip, this time against the Arizona Coyotes. They downed the cellar dwellers in the Central Division in the Chicago Blackhawks with relative ease in their last contest on Saturday in a 7-3 victory that was their best performance in at least a month. They'll look to continue that momentum here tonight.

There will be no changes to tonight's lineup. After a victory like the one on Saturday, it's hard to imagine any coach switching things up. Hooray for confirmation bias!

Jaroslav Halak gets the nod in tonight's contest. He's up against Annti Raanta for the Coyotes. The Islanders against any New York Rangers goalie either past or present seems to always bode well.

Tonight's game will be aired on MSG+. The Coyotes get the plus treatment themselves - they're on Fox Sports Arizona Plus (or something like that) thanks to the Phoenix Suns game. Puck drop will be at 9:05 E.S.T.
