After snapping a four-game losing streak Saturday, the New York Islanders will have a hard time sustaining that momentum this week, as it faces three straight home games against opponents that are all above .500.

However, it will be a tough task as the Islanders (6-11-4, 16 points), who as of Monday sit in last place in the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division, play three road games -- at the Buffalo Sabres, at the Chicago Blackhawks and at the Dallas Stars, respectively. All three Islanders' opponents have records above .500, while New York is a dreadful 1-5-2 on the road.

Sat., Dec. 3: Islanders at Stars -- 8:30 p.m. ET on MSG+
