Islanders At Sabres: New York Visits Buffalo Searching For Back-To-Back Victories

The New York Islanders begin a three-game road trip Tuesday night at the Buffalo Sabres. Here's a brief preview of the match up.

Only once this season have the New York Islanders strung together back-to-back victories, but Tuesday night at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo the Isles get a chance to do just that, as they face the Buffalo Sabres in an Eastern Conference match up (7 p.m. ET on MSG+). The contest will be the first of three on the road this week for the Islanders (6-11-4, 16 points), who also play at the Chicago Blackhawks, Friday and at the Dallas Stars, Saturday.

Last Saturday, New York defeated the New Jersey Devils, 3-2, to halt a four-game losing streak. During the skid, the Islanders were shut out three times and lost in overtime, 4-3, to the Philadelphia Flyers, Nov. 23. Entering Tuesday's game, New York is a dreadful 1-5-2 on the oad this season and sits in last place in the Atlantic Division.

Meanwhile, the Sabres (13-9-1, 27 points) are coming off a 5-1 victory over the Washington Capitals last Saturday. The victory snapped a three-game skid for Buffalo, which enters the game in third place in the Northeast Division.

This season, both the Islanders and Sabres have yet to meet.
