After snapping a four-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils Saturday, the New York Islanders look to build off that momentum this week (November 28-December 3). 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.
Here's a brief Islanders' composite schedule for the this week:
Tue., Nov. 30: Islanders at Sabres -- 7:00 p.m. ET on MSG+
Fri., Dec. 2: Islanders at Blackhawks -- 8:30 p.m. ET on MSG+
Sat., Dec. 3: Islanders at Stars -- 8:30 p.m. ET on MSG+
