After winning back-to-back games this weekend and 5 out of the last 6 points, the Islanders will look to string together three straight with a win at GM place tonight.

No one can bemoan NHL scheduling quite like the Canucks, who endured a ridiculous 14-game road trip from January 30-March 10 (granted with the Olympic break in between, but still!). Regardless, the Canucks weathered the storm well and are 6-1-1 since the break.

They'll look to build upon a seven-game home winning streak, while the Isles will look to snap an eight-game road losing streak.
