Islanders Gameday News: New York looking for a Texas-sized start

Still on the road is the New York Islanders. They flew over Arkansas to get from Nashville to Dallas to visit the Dallas Stars, who are doing quite well under Peter DeBoer.

Their top line, with grumpy, old man Joe Pavelski hanging out with extremely talented youngsters Roope Hintz and especially Jason Robertson, is perhaps even better than they were last year; Hintz and Robertson are both riding ten-game point streaks. Tyler Seguin seems to have rediscovered his scoring touch next to Mason Marchment to become a good second-line center. And Jamie Benn has had a very hot start as a third-line winger to give them three dangerous lines, plus a decent shutdown fourth line.
