New York Islanders At Colorado Avalanche: Preview, Game Time, TV

The Islanders and Avalanche have each been sliding recently. Only one team can turn it around when these two teams meet for the only time this season.

The Islanders step back onto the ice on Thursday night against another team struggling as of late, the Avalanche. After a hot start, Colorado has lost six of its last seven games, dropping to 7-7-1.

Meanwhile, New York (4-6-2) has won once in its last eight games. The Islanders got whipped 6-2 by the Bruins, a loss that wiped out the good feelings lingering from a 5-3 win against the Capitals.

New York will have to watch its penalties in this matchup. The Avalance boast the No. 1 Power Play in the NHL, converting on 29.2 of their chances so far this season. The Islanders have been a slightly below average defensive team this season and average on the power play. New York ranks 16th in the NHL in killing man-down situations.

Game Time: 9 p.m. ET, Thursday Nov. 10, 2011
TV Schedule: MSG+ (New York), Altitude (Denver)
Game Location: Pepsi Center, Denver, Colo.
