Pregame 1/12: Islanders at Stars

The Islanders play the 3rd of their 6 game road trip tonight in Dallas against the Stars coming off a 2-1 overtime win on Friday night in Colorado. This is the second and final meeting between the two teams this season as the Islanders defeated the Stars 7-3 last Monday night at Nassau Coliseum.

It's Still Too Soon To Count Out Poulin

Kevin Poulin has been under the Islanders' microscope for quite some time. The organization has put a lot of faith in him, expecting him to eventually take over the starting position from veteran net-minder Evgeni Nabokov, perhaps as early as next season (Photo credit: 560XLS/Flickr).

Early on, fans were probably starting to lower their expectations for Poulin, only winning one of his first five starts and then dropping six in a row between November 19th and December 7th.

However, a recent surge by the Islanders, which can be very much attributed to the performance of Poulin, may help turn a few heads and increase the confidence of the 23-year old keeper.

Lowly Islanders Head To L.A. To Face The Kings

The New York Islanders continue their western road trip tonight with a stop in Los Angeles to face the Kings, still searching for their first regulation win after the last 11 games played.

The Islanders will still be without Evgeni Nabokov tonight, as Kevin Poulin is slated to start between the pipes. At the other end of the ice will likely be Ben Scrivens, who has taken over for Jonathan Quick after he went down due to injury. Scrivens has played exceptionally well, helping keep his team in the top three of the Pacific Division and 5th in the Western Conference.
