Coming off a pair of 3-0 shutout wins, the New York Islanders look to extend their winning streak to three games when they take on the Minnesota Wild in a President's Day matinee (1 p.m., MSG+, MSG GO).
The two-game winning streak - the Islanders first since winning three straight in mid January - has the Isles back in a playoff position, as they leapfrogged both the Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jackets for the second wild card. As of Monday, the Islanders and Hurricanes are tied with 64 points apiece, with the Isles holding the ROW tiebreaker (26 to 24).
