The New York Islanders and Chicago Blackhawks will have nine days off after they meet Tuesday night, but only one team is going to want the chance to reset.
The surprisingly resurgent Islanders will look to carry their winning streak into the All-Star break when they visit Chicago. The struggling Blackhawks will be seeking to build momentum to take into the break.
Both teams earned wins Sunday, followed by a day off. The Islanders notched their fifth straight victory by blanking the visiting Anaheim Ducks, 3-0. The host Blackhawks snapped a five-game losing streak by upsetting the Washington Capitals, 8-5.
