If only every day of the season could be like this for the Arizona Coyotes and the New York Islanders.

The Islanders play at the Coyotes at Gila River Arena on Monday night, and both teams must be wondering if they can play any better than they did in decisive victories on Saturday.

The Arizona Coyotes are off to the worst start in franchise history at 0-9-1. They've had every problem imaginable but one of them -- goaltending -- could be solved Saturday.

Antti Raanta, acquired in the offseason to serve as the Coyotes' No. 1 goaltender, could return from a two-week absence due to a lower-body injury to face the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center. He was on the ice Wednesday and practiced Friday, and the coaching staff feels he could be ready.

The Arizona Coyotes couldn't wait for a New Year's break. The New York Islanders wanted to keep playing. There was a simple reason for both desires.

Arizona had lost eight straight games without registering a point before their five-day break. Then came Friday's overtime loss in Anaheim -- the Coyotes' first point since Dec. 15. The Islanders had won four of five before their five-day break, but dropped a 2-1, overtime decision on Friday in Colorado against the Western Conference's worst team.

Tuesday's win over the Arizona Coyotes will be one Kael Mouillierat won't soon forget.?

The Islanders were ahead 3-1 midway through the third period when Colin McDonald fed Mouillierat in the slot. The rookie then proceeded to fire a shot past Mike Smith and into the net for his first National Hockey League goal. He also gave the Islanders the 4-1 lead.

"It's obviously a pretty unbelievable feeling," Mouillierat said about his first goal. "You play so long and especially at my age to get your first crack at the NHL. There's times in the minors when you think it's never going to happen and then when it does it's pretty incredible. It's obviously a great feeling."
