Islanders' key stretch starts with visit to Devils

The New York Islanders' first slump in several weeks has arrived, and it comes with their most pivotal stretch of the season upon them.

The Islanders will begin a three-game stretch against potential Stanley Cup contenders Friday night, when New York is slated to visit the New Jersey Devils in a battle of longtime division rivals at Newark, N.J.

Both teams have been off since playing at home Tuesday night, when the Islanders' late comeback bid fell short in a 7-4 home loss to the St. Louis Blues and the Devils continued rolling with a 3-0 home win over the Chicago Blackhawks.
