The New York Islanders take an eight-game points streak into Pittsburgh, where they’ll face the Penguins for the third of six meetings this month.

The first two meetings finished 4-3 — one a real-life regulation win, the other a shootout loss that gives the Isles three points out of a possible four thus far.

The radar is up for potential lineup changes, after Anthony Beauvillier returned (and bumped Leo Komarov from the lineup) during the second game in Buffalo.

The Penguins are coming off a series split with the Capitals, which followed their split* (shootout asterisk) with the Isles.

But How Does This Affect Toronto?

Meanwhile, in Toronto, they’ve momentarily run out of drama to manufacture about the Leafs, so it’s time to ask: Is It Time To Ask Sidney Crosby If He Wants To Be Traded? (Don’t click that.)

Don’t ever change.
