NEW YORK -- The Calgary Flames are staying afloat during a six-game Eastern Conference road trip. They will try to close the trek out in winning style Monday when they face the skidding New York Islanders at Barclays Center.

Both teams are coming off losses. Calgary fell to the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3 Sunday night, while New York dropped a 3-2 decision to the Sharks in San Jose on Friday. The Islanders return home to open a brief two-game homestand.

The Flames already ensured themselves of at least a .500 trip (3-2-0). They enter play Monday two points behind the Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars in the race for the final Western Conference wild-card berth.

  • Kevin Hayes enters play this weekend on a four-game pointless streak. Including a helper in these clubs' first game of the season, Hayes has tallied one point in each of his first three career skates vs. the Flames (1g, 2a in those games).
  • Sean Monahan lit the lamp twice Thursday night, earning first-star accolades, and giving him seven points (3g, 4a) during his current four-game scoring streak. Monahan has three points (1g, 2a) in five career skates against the Blueshirts.

Jaroslav Halak returns to net for tonight's game against the Calgary Flames. He will once again look for his franchise record 33rd win of the season.

Halak has appeared in 45 games this year?with the Islanders and has compiled a 32-13-0 record. In his last start, Halak allowed three goals against and the Islanders lost 4-0 to the Vancouver Canucks. One thing the Islanders coach staff has begun to do is to monitor the number of starts they give Halak down the stretch.

"It will be one of the things we manage," Islanders' head coach Jack Capuano said. "Chad [Johnson] has been playing real well for us. Obviously you don't want a goalie to sit too long, but we had three games this weekend. We discussed it last week that Chad will go two out of the three.
