1 p.m. ET; ESPN+, MSG+, FS-MW, NHL.TV
The St. Louis Blues will play the finale of their four-game road trip when they visit the New York Islanders at Nassau Coliseum on Monday.
St. Louis won its first two games on the trip before losing for the first time in regulation this season, 6-3 to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. The Blues had allowed three goals or fewer in each of their first three games but have allowed 10 in the past two.
The Islanders are seeking their second straight win following a 3-2 shootout victory against the Florida Panthers on Saturday, but are without forwards Jordan Eberle (undisclosed) and Casey Cizikas (lower body), each of whom are day to day. Cizikas was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 8. Forward Oliver Wahlstrom, chosen by the Islanders with the No. 11 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, was recalled from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.
Players to watch
Blues center Brayden Schenn has a four-game goal streak.
Islanders forward Josh Bailey has two goals and two assists in his past four games.
They said it
"We've had a good road trip so far and have a chance to make it a great trip. Now we'll focus on that." -- Blues defenseman Colton Parayko
"Every game is crucial. You always want some traction, you don't want to revert to our Edmonton game (a 5-2 loss on Oct. 8). Let's be within the realm of this one (win against Panthers) and the one [Friday] night (a 5-2 loss at the Carolina Hurricanes). If we do that, we're going to win our share of games." -- Islanders coach Barry Trotz
