This week the New York Islanders have three games of the Tuesday, Friday, Saturday variety.
On Tuesday, October 22nd at 7pm, it is the Vancouver Canucks (5-4-1) @ New York Islanders (3-3-2)
On Friday, October 25th at 7pm, the New York Islanders travel to Pittsburgh (7-1) for their first game agains the Pens since Game 6 of last years Eastern Conference Finals.
On Saturday, October 26th at 7pm, the Islanders return home to face off against the Philadelphia Flyers (1-7) for the first time this season.
The Islanders will face three very tough tests this week. Two of the three games are home (Tuesday and Saturday night) which is nice. In my opinion grabbing 5 out of 6 points would be excellent. But I think most would be happy with taking two out of three this week before getting ready to face off against the cross town rivals next tuesday.
