The New York Islanders look to snap a two-game losing streak, as they visit the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre (7:00 p.m. on MSG+).

The New York Islanders began the month of December by winning two of their first three games, but since then the Isles are back to their losing ways dropping two straight and searching for answers. On Tuesday, New York (9-12-6, 24 points) vists the Montreal Canadiens (12-11-7, 31 points) in search of its second road victory in Dec. and just its fourth overall in an East Conference match up at the Bell Centre (7:00 p.m. on MSG+).

On Saturday, the Isles lost to the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins, 6-3, despite taking a 2-0, first-period lead. The loss was New York's second consecutive at home for New York, which still sits in last-place in the Atlantic Division.

Meanwhile, the Cadadiens have dropped six of their last eight games, and has lost their last four games at home. On Saturday, Montreal edged the New Jersey Devils, 2-1, thanks to goaltender Carey Price stopping 29-of-30 shots.
