-The first game of a 5 game road trip for Vancouver that spans from Long Island to Colorado.
-When the Canucks laid a massive egg against the Islanders last March, John Tavares was in on all 5 Islanders goals (2 goals and 3 assists). Daniel and Henrik Sedin were a combined -6.
-The Canucks don't play the Islanders all that often. They have lost the last 2 against them and are 2-1-1 against them since January 2006.
-Vancouver can open up a 3 point lead over the Wings for top spot in the West, as Detroit lost to Colorado Monday night.
-Last thing I want to see is Michael Grabner punishing his old team in any form. Would love to see Jeff Tambellini take it to his old team though, for more reasons than one. He has not scored a point in 6 games.
-Islanders are 6-1 in their last 7 against the NW Division.
-This is the Isles' first game back at home after a 5 game road trip where they went 3-2, beating the Red Wings, Flames and Avalanche.
-The Islanders have won 4 and lost 1 in their last 5 games at home.
