Isles try to turn things around out West
The Isles face the Anaheim Ducks tonight in the first of a three-game West Coast jaunt to end a taxing stretch of 12 of 15 games on the road.
The 8-7-1 Ducks are coming off a 3-2 overtime win over San Jose last night; Defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky gave Anaheim the winner and Jonas Hiller made 39 saves.
Defenseman James Wisniewski will face his former team tonight for the first time since being traded to the Islanders this August.
Former Islander Andy Sutton, who suffered a broken thumb opening night with the Ducks, is still about two weeks away from returning to action but is on the ice for Anaheim's optional skate at Honda Center this morning.
