|VANCOUVER: LAST SEASON: 31-40-11, 73 points. Finished seventh in Pacific Division and missed playoffs.
COACH: Travis Green (Second season, second NHL season)
ADDED: LW Antoine Roussel, C Jay Beagle
LOST: LW Daniel Sedin, C Henrik Sedin
PLAYER TO WATCH: RW Brock Boeser. In the post-Sedins era, the Canucks have a budding superstar in Boeser, who led them with 55 points in 62 games last season as a rookie. The sharpshooter from Minnesota should just be getting started and is a bright spot for a Vancouver team without a lot in the present to get excited about.
OUTLOOK: Probably a fourth consecutive season without a trip to the playoffs. Canucks general manager Jim Benning continues making stopgap moves to help Vancouver avoid bottoming out, but at some point, that needs to happen to build up the kind of next-generation talent needed to get back to contending again. It's not there yet.
|NY ISLANDERS: LAST SEASON: 35-37-10, 80 points. Seventh in Metropolitan Division.
COACH: Barry Trotz (first season, 20th NHL season).
ADDED: F Leo Komarov, F Valtteri Filppula, F Tom Kuhnhackl, F Jan Kovar, G Robin Lehner, D Luca Sbisa.
LOST: F John Tavares, D Calvin de Haan, G Jaroslav Halak.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Mathew Barzal. The reigning Calder Trophy winner as the league's top rookie will be looked on to fill a bigger role with Tavares' departure. Barzal led the team in scoring last season with 85 points (22 goals, 63 assists). After playing on the second line with Jordan Eberle and fellow youngster Anthony Beauvillier a year ago, Barzal is expected to lead the top line with Beauvillier and Josh Bailey.
OUTLOOK: The Islanders have made just three playoff appearances in the last 11 seasons, missing out by 17 points last season after finishing with 30 losses in their final 45 games (15-24-6). The regression cost general manager Garth Snow and
COACH Doug Weight their jobs, replaced by three-time champion executive Lou Lamoriello as president of hockey operations and Trotz ' who led Washington to the Stanley Cup title. The change in leadership has brought new optimism for the future, though experts expect another playoff miss.
|Isles, Canucks both aim to snap skids|
NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders and Vancouver Canucks were two of the most surprising stories of the NHL through the first month of the season. But these next few weeks are likely to reveal more about the Islanders and Canucks than the first few weeks.
The Islanders and Canucks will each be looking to snap losing streaks Tuesday night, when New York hosts Vancouver at Barclays Center.
The Islanders suffered their third straight loss Saturday night, when they fell to the host Florida Panthers, 4-2. The visiting Canucks lost their second consecutive game Monday, when they dropped a 2-1 decision to the New York Rangers.
For the Islanders (8-6-2), the losing streak followed a five-game winning streak that catapulted them to the top of the Metropolitan Division. But new head coach Barry Trotz is looking at the recent struggles as an opportunity for New York -- which wasn't expected to contend for a playoff spot following the offseason departure of John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs -- to display its maturity.
"Two things happen to this team when teams go into funks," Trotz told reporters following practice Monday afternoon. "Everybody wants to play the blame game. It's the power play, it's the penalty kill, it's the coach, it's the management, whatever. The teams that come out of the other end if you let them fight through the adversity, and there's no blame someone for this or blame someone for that -- what happens is those teams always come out better on the other side. They become more resilient. They become better teams."
Like the Islanders, the Pacific Division-leading Canucks (10-7-2) are in a far better position than anyone could have envisioned after the retirements of twin brothers Henrik and Daniel Sedin ushered in a rebuilding era. But in losing three of their last four games -- and falling each time by a goal -- Vancouver is learning the fine line between victory and defeat.
The Canucks gave up two goals in the final three minutes of a 4-3 shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday and lost Monday when the Rangers scored twice off faceoffs deep in the Vancouver zone.
"It's a tough league -- if you relax for a second, you get punished," Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom said Monday night, when he took the loss after making 25 saves. "In Buffalo, that was the case. It was a tough one. And then today, too."
Neither team announced a starting goalie for Tuesday night, though with the Canucks playing the second game of a back-to-back set, it is likely ex-Islanders goalie Anders Nilsson will draw the start in place of Markstrom, who has started eight straight games. Nilsson last played Oct. 25, when he took the loss after making 26 saves as Vancouver fell to the Arizona Coyotes, 4-1.
Robin Lehner has been in net for the Islanders' last two losses -- including Saturday, when he made 27 saves against the Panthers -- so New York could turn back to Thomas Greiss on Tuesday. Greiss hasn't played since Nov. 5, when he recorded 32 saves and took the defeat in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens.
Nilsson is 0-3-0 in three career appearances against the Islanders. Greiss (2-2-0) and Lehner (1-2-0) have each made four appearances against the Canucks.
