The New York Islanders schedule resumes this week with three home games, beginning on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning (7 p.m., MSG Plus).
The Islanders still dwell in the Atlantic Division cellar, but have registered points in four consecutive games, winning three of them and picking up one point for a shootout loss. Led by Matt Moulson's four-goal night, the first time any NHL player scored four goals in a single game this season, New York outlasted the Dallas Stars 5-4 in Dallas on Saturday.
The Islanders continues Thursday night against the Chicago Blackhawks (7 p.m., MSG Plus), then concludes on Saturday night against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., MSG Plus). Chicago is 6-4-0 in its last ten games and leads the Central Division. Pittsburgh, sitting atop the Eastern Conference with 36 points, has won five of its seven games since Crosby's return from injury.
