St. Louis Blues at New York Islanders NHL Matchup

After a slow start to the season, the New York Islanders began playing the style of hockey that head coach Barry Trotz prefers during a back-to-back set of games Friday and Saturday. The St. Louis Blues have collected points in four of their first five games, but that doesn’t mean head coach Craig Berube likes what he’s seen from the defending Stanley Cup champions.

The Islanders will look to mount their first winning streak of the season Monday afternoon when they host the Blues in Uniondale, N.Y.

Both teams were off Sunday after playing Saturday. The host Islanders edged the Florida Panthers, 3-2, in a shootout while the visiting Blues suffered their first regulation loss of the year by falling to the Montreal Canadiens, 6-3.

The Islanders opened last week with consecutive losses to the Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes in which they were outscored 10-4, but Trotz said he began to sense a change in New York’s play in Friday’s loss to the Hurricanes.
