The NY Islanders' six-game winning streak is long gone, as they now try to find a way to snap their four-game losing streak. The Isles look like a completely different team over the last week, scoring only five goals during their current skid while allowing 16.

The firey Patrick Roy seems as if he's at the breaking point with his team, as the big-game goaltender is having trouble comprehending how his team has failed to show up during big moments like the entire roster did aside from Bo Horvat during the Islanders blowout loss to the NY Rangers.

“I saw a team that played better than us today,” Roy said. “The Rangers, they managed the puck much better than what we did. They’re very fast in transition. I thought they had more energy than us for some reason."

Roy's options within his roster are limited, but here are three lineup changes that can help light a spark in the season's final push.
