This is not the first time that Goaltender Jaroslav Halak has helped carry a team to heights it never expected in an international tournament.

For the past four games, Halak has been the primary reason Team Europe, perhaps the most unfancied team among the eight at the World Cup of Hockey 2016, is still standing and preparing for a best-of-3 final series against tournament favorite Team Canada

Game 1 is Tuesday at Air Canada Centre (8 p.m. ET; ESPN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Preview: Islanders vs. Flyers

The Islanders kick off the 2016 preseason against the Philadelphia Flyers

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

The New York Islanders kick off their preseason on Monday night, hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at 7 p.m. at Barclays Center.

Islanders first-round picks - Mathew Barzal, Joshua Ho-Sang, Michael Dal Colle and Anthony Beauvillier - will play in Monday's game, skating alongside Ryan Strome, Ryan Pulock, Shane Prince and Eric Boulton.  

"It's important for everybody to showcase what they can bring to our lineup and our identity," head coach Jack Capuano said. "I'm not looking at the result as much as where guys are going to fit, which guys have good hockey IQ that can play within the team concept, but also guys that play with pace and play the way that we want to play.

Renewed Strome could be back at center

The 23-year-old changed his offseason routine, skated as center to open training camp

by Cory Wright WrightsWay / New York Islanders

Ryan Strome was back at center on the first day of Islanders training camp - and it's possible he could be there to start the season as well. 

Strome skated between Anders Lee and Josh Bailey in the second group of Friday's skate at Northwell Health Ice Center and while that move back to center isn't official, the 23-year-old would welcome it. 

"If that's the way it shakes out, then that'd be great," Strome said. "Obviously it'd be a bit of an adjustment just trying to get back to it. Nothing I'm not used to, I've been a centerman a lot of my life."
