Islanders Vs. Hurricanes: Islanders Look To Make It Three Straight Wins

The New York Islanders look to extend their winning streak to three in a home game against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight.

The New York Islanders have won two consecutive games and look to make it three tonight as they host the Carolina Hurricanes. Both teams are bottom-dwellers in the Eastern Conference standings with 42 points a piece and trail the eighth place Florida Panthers by 10 points.

Carolina is also coming off a victory, a three to nothing shutout over the Washington Capitals. Tonight represents the second game in as many nights for the Hurricanes; they're 3-6 in the second game of a back to back this season, and 5-13-5 on the road, where they'll be playing tonight.

The Islanders are coming off a victory over the playoff-bound Philadelphia Flyers, in which they snapped a 13 game losing streak in Philadelphia. They won by a final score of 4-1 behind two assists from center John Tavares.

The game is scheduled for 7:00 EST at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
