GAME: Tampa Bay Lightning (13-6-4-1) at New York Islanders (10-13-2-0).TIME: Tuesday, 7 p.m. EST.
The Tampa Bay Lightning look to continue their winning ways on their four-game road trip when they meet the New York Islanders for the second time this season.
Tampa Bay was on a season-high six-game winless streak when it began its trip, but snapped that skid with a 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
The Lightning then moved on and beat the New York Rangers 3-2 on Sunday, giving them consecutive victories for the first time since a three-game winning streak from Nov. 14-22.
On Sunday, Tampa Bay fought fatigue while playing its third game in four nights. The Lightning, who arrived in New York about six hours before the contest because of a Northeast snowstorm, outshot and outscored the Rangers in the third period to rally for the win.
Trailing 2-1 in the decisive final period, Martin St. Louis tied it with a breakaway goal during a power play 1:26 into the period, then set up Cory Sarich for the winner at 8:23.
"We played a simple road game, nothing flashy," St. Louis said. "Obviously we didn't get much rest. A 5 o'clock game on a back-to-back day, there's almost no time to think about it. You just get right back at it."
The Lightning now face an Islanders team that snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 5-2 win Saturday over the Chicago Blackhawks, a club that is winless in 14 straight games.
"I just tried to keep it simple and have some fun again," Scatchard said after his return from a separated shoulder sustained Oct. 18. "I realized after being away for so long just how much I missed it."
