At the Rink: Islanders at Panthers

The New York Islanders will look to win their fifth straight game when they visit the Florida Panthers at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla., on Friday.

A victory against the Panthers would also tie a franchise record of winning 11 of the first 16 games of the season. The Islanders won 11 of their first 16 four times before (1976-77, 1982-83, 1987-88, 2001-02).

Left wing Josh Bailey, who missed eight games with a hand injury, was activated off injured reserve Thursday and will be back in the lineup against the Panthers, according to the team's website.

"I'm excited," Bailey said. "It felt like a lot longer than it was. It was three weeks. I got to be a part of everything, watch every game and stay in shape the whole time being able to skate. It could have been a worse injury. It's never easy to watch your team play, but I'm happy they did well and I want to get in and contribute."

At the Rink: Blackhawks at Red Wings

DETROIT -- Pavel Datsyuk returns to the Detroit Red Wings lineup after missing the past two games with a sore groin.

Detroit (7-3-5) plays the Chicago Blackhawks (9-6-1) at Joe Louis Arena on Friday.

Datsyuk has five goals and five assists for 10 points in eight games after missing the first five games of the season with a separated shoulder.

"He was playing great when he left, and anytime you get leg injuries or groin injuries, to me, it's not like a shoulder if your legs are going and you come back," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. "So we'll see what happens here tonight."
