DALLAS -- When the Dallas Stars host the New York Islanders at American Airlines Center on Friday evening, both teams will share a similar goal -- getting a bounce-back win.
The Islanders (8-5-2, 18 points) lost 2-1 in overtime to Edmonton on Tuesday at the Barclays Center. New York will finish the quick two-game road trip Saturday at St. Louis before playing again on Nov. 16 against Carolina.
New York coach Doug Weight said that other than not getting the full two points against one of his former clubs, the Oilers, he was pleased with the Islanders' effort in the overtime loss.
On Wednesday, New York recalled young center Alan Quine from AHL Bridgeport, where he had completed a two-week conditioning assignment. Weight maintains high hopes for Quine, who had 18 points (13 assists) in 61 NHL games last season.
During practice on Thursday in Dallas, Quine centered New York's third line with Andrew Ladd on the left and Anthony Beauvillier on the right. >> Read more
