Preview: Red Wings at Islanders

Pavel Datsyuk extended his point streak to five games and eclipsed the 900-point plateau for his career (902) by scoring twice and setting up captain Henrik Zetterberg’s game-winning goal. New York, which fell into the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference by virtue of New Jersey’s win on Sunday, hopes to avenge a 4-2 home loss to Detroit on Jan. 25. The Islanders have won three straight at Barclays Center since, averaging six goals per victory. The Red Wings are looking to complete a sweep of the three-game season series, as they also recorded a 5-1 home triumph on Feb. 6.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 1 p.m. ET, NHL Network, Sportsnet, FSN Detroit, MSG Plus (New York)
