It feels a little different — a 1 p.m. start, in Brooklyn, after a 10-day layoff — but the New York Islanders are finally back.

Not much breathing room in the standings nor excuses among the staff for a rust-shaking start. But the visitors, the Vancouver Canucks, have already played since the All-Star break, having beaten the Blues and the Sharks in regulation this week.

Tough task ahead for the home team.

Hockey’s back!
