NHL schedule 2014: Islanders aim to overcome Detroit home dominance

New York visits the Motor City determined to improve their standing in the Eastern Conference.

Two NHL heavyweights continue coastal road swings while an important Eastern Conference matchup takes place in the Motor City on Friday.

The New York Islanders visit Detroit on Friday evening in a battle between two of the Eastern Conference’s best teams this season. The Red Wings come into the game tied with the Isles in the conference at 42 points and boast a sparkling 11-3-5 record at home. The difference between the two clubs is their play after regulation. New York is perfect in shootouts this season (6-0) while the Red Wings are just 1-6.

Elsewhere, the Ducks will look to improve their league-best record against the Ottawa Senators. But the Senators should prove to be a tough out, as they’ve won two straight and just finished an undefeated road trip. Meanwhile, the Bruins try to turn their fortunes around against the surprising Winnipeg Jets in Manitoba.

Here is the full schedule for Friday. All times are Eastern.
