Islanders Look To 'Get A Piece Of The Rock' Thursday In New Jersey

The Isles are currently 2-1-1 on this trip after Tuesday night's destruction of the Pittsburgh Penguins. As always, the Islanders are led by their star John Tavares who has two goals and six assists for eight points in the season's first eight games.

With under five minutes left in the opening period, the Isles put up their first of the night.
