Doug Weight on rebounding after Sunday's game:

Coach Doug Weight said he's expecting his team to bounce-back after Sunday's loss in Calgary, which he partially attributes to a grinding road schedule. The Islanders played three games in less than four days, with back-to-back games in Dallas and Chicago before playing an afternoon game in Calgary. The Islanders had Monday off in Edmonton, so Weight is hoping the rest rejuvenated his players. 

"We're going to reboot," Weight said. "We've done some good things and we're in position right now where we're going to learn from our game on Sunday, we're going to watch and take some things out of it. We're going to bring some energy, we had a day off and it's a big test for us."

Homecoming For Chimera: 

Tuesday is a homecoming for Jason Chimera, who grew up in Edmonton. 

"It's good. Always fun to come back home, see your parents and family. It's a great place, a great place to grow up and you see some people like your parents you don't see too often, so nice to have dinner with them.
