Michael Frolik is on a three-game point streak (one goal and two2 assists).

New York enters this game after all three on a road trip to Toronto, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.

The (8-13-3) Islanders are eighth in the Metropolitan Division with 19 points.  They trail seventh place Columbus by two points and are three back of Philadelphia.

Kevin Poulin (3-8, 3.10, .891) will start in goal.
