#47| New York Islanders @ Dallas Stars | January 12th | 6:00pm | F/W 4-2

"Our good luck charm"








Preview


All time series record: The Islanders lead 58-38-16. Islanders all time away are 24-20-8


While solid road play has highlighted the New York Islanders' latest surge, the Dallas Stars can't win any place of late.

Looking to win seven straight on the road for the first time in almost 33 years, the Islanders try for their second victory in seven days over a Stars team that hopes to avoid the franchise's longest regulation skid in nearly two decades.

A winner in six of seven, New York (17-22-7) is again in position to win four straight for the first time since Feb. 10-15, 2011. Four victories during this surge have come on the road, where the Islanders have totaled 25 goals during a six-game run that comes after they scored 36 while losing 13 of the first 17 away from home.

After Poulin made 30 saves and Michael Grabner scored in overtime of a 2-1 victory at Colorado on Friday, New York has a chance to win seven straight road games for the first time since a franchise-best eight-game run Feb. 27-March 29, 1981.

The Stars return home looking to end a season-high five-game skid after scoring five goals during an 0-3-0 trip through the New York metropolitan area. Dallas hasn't suffered six straight regulation losses since Dec. 5-15, 1995.

Dallas leading scorer Tyler Seguin has gone without a point in four straight games but has 11 in 10 career matchups with the Islanders.

Teammate Jamie Benn has one point in three games after recording four goals and three assists in the previous five. He has three goals and two assists in five career contests against the Islanders.

Wow, that is one funny GDT. I love the placement of the Ranger logo. Hope the Isles can keep winning.

Matt, you are crazy, love the GDT and the Rag$ logo in an appropriate place.
I just made a copy of the GDT and hung PW's picture next to Loic Leduc.

We should raise money to get PW some white castle, or Papa Johns. It's for a worthy cause.

Stars have yet to win in 2014, having lost their 5th in a row to the Rags last night. They are obviously still a good team and we have no reason to take any team lightly. That being said, we really need to take it to them early. An early goal or two can potentially totally deflate them. Need to not give them any reason to feel good about themselves.

Funny thing is that was to cover a pipe in the background and was a Islander hand towel. I guess it just looked like toilet paper and, well, the rest will be history.

this win would be quite fun and I think would really send a message that the Isles are mounting a charge!

We embarrassed them a few days ago. They will be coming out hard and looking for revenge.

The Isles are playing well enough where the offense will get the job done. The defense will have to play good as Dallas will be coming on strong.


I like our chances. Win this one, and then we position ourselves to win 2/3 next week for a real interesting week to follow.

PW...go get a sack of 10 at White Castle, then chase that with a few cheesy potato burritos from Taco Bell....that should keep you on the can for a while and increase the chances of a victory :-D

This game has let down all over it. If we were in a playoff spot right now with a winning record, I'd be okay with losing this one being they have been winning a lot lately. Unfortunately they don't have this liberty and need to continue to win.

Should be a win with top line coming back strongly. 5-1 Isles.

I'm not as young as I used to be so if I were to down that stuff... get my coffin ready. Plus, I'd be on the throne for a lot longer than the duration of the game.
