TODAY’S MATCHUP
Today, the New York Islanders host the Detroit Red Wings in the third and final matchup between the two clubs this season, their lone matinee game on home ice in 2022-23. The home team has registered a shutout in each meeting between these teams this season. The Islanders and Red Wings last met on January 27 at UBS Arena, when Brock Nelson and Anders Lee each scored and Ilya Sorokin turned aside all 23 shots faced to help the Islanders defeat the Red Wings, 2-0. The Islanders have collected points in five of their last seven games, and finished the month of February with a 6-3-3 record.

The Islanders have a 7-3-1 record against Detroit since the beginning of the 2018-19 season, including five straight wins on home ice. The Islanders have also collected points in nine of their last ten matchups against Atlantic Division opponents.

The Islanders return to game action today, following three days idle. Their last matchup was a 2-1 shootout loss to the Minnesota Wild in St. Paul on Tuesday evening. It was the 21st time this season that the Islanders captured at least one point in a game decided by a single goal. Including the Christmas Break and All-Star Break, today’s game is the fourth time this season that the Islanders return to action following three straight days without a game. They are 2-0-1 (Dec. 27 vs. PIT, Jan. 10 vs. DAL, Feb. 6 at PHI) when playing after three days idle.
