Islanders vs. Stars: Betting odds, lineups, Must win for playoff spot
Players to Watch
The former 2016 19th overall pick, Kieffer Bellows is in line to make his NHL debut tonight. The 21-year-old debut is highly anticipated for many Islander fans and many see Bellows as an answer to the Islanders recent offense struggles.
Bellows can add extra to the struggling third line and his debut should be fun to watch. At the very least he can act as some sort of lightning rod for underperforming players.

Joe Pavelski has been on an absolute tear for the Stars on their road trip in the Tri-State Area. On Saturday night, he scored the Overtime winner against the Devils and last night he scored goals 16 seconds apart to help the Stars take down the Rangers.
The 35-year-old power forward still has a lot to offer in the NHL and is finally looking to hit his stride. Before this road trip, he only eight goals but in two games so far he has boosted that total to eleven.
The Dallas Stars number 16 looks hungry for goals and look for him to get to work in the “dirty areas” to add to his season tally.
