A solid presence the past three seasons for Chicago, Leddy has been a strong two-way asset with 14 points for the Islanders but posted a minus-3 rating in the last two games. The Islanders, whose seven-game home winning streak ended with a 6-4 defeat to St. Louis last Saturday, have not dropped consecutive games at Nassau Coliseum this season.

Cooper-USA TODAY Sports Elsewhere, the Blue Jackets and Capitals battle to keep their own win streaks alive, and the Sharks host the Wild. There’s a lot of action on the NHL schedule, with the game of the night coming from Boston. The Bruins play host to the Chicago Blackhawks at TD Garden at 7 p.m. ET. The Blackhawks are rolling as they enter the game on a seven-game win streak. Chicago hasn’t exactly been feasting on lesser-thans during the streak either. Chicago has wins against Montreal, Nashville, St. Louis, Anaheim, and Los Angeles in that time, and now the team faces a Bruins squad coming off a 5-2 win against Arizona on Saturday. Even counting Saturday’s victory, however, Boston has lost five of the past seven games. The team is looking to get things right and may have David Krejci back against Chicago. source: http://www.sbnation.com/nhl/2014/12/11/7375175/2014-nhl-schedule-blackhawks-bruins-tv-schedule
