Bad Apples: Rangers host Islanders

NEW YORK -- When the New York Islanders and New York Rangers meet, there is never a shortage of intensity and energy.

With the way each team has started the 2017-18 season, there may be even more desperation than usual Thursday for an October matchup.

The Islanders will visit Madison Square Garden with two wins in six games. The reeling Rangers have one win in seven games, making the two points available in this contest particularly meaningful.
