The Islanders complete game number two of a back to back against the Montreal Canadiens. The Islanders lost the first game two to one against the Senators and will be looking to bounce back. Michal Neuvirth (the Noid) is getting the start tonight against Carey Price. Ryan Strome is a healthy scratch tonight as Frans Nielsen makes his triumphant return to the lineup. The team is also checking to see if Matt Donovan has a pulse and if so he will be in for Lubomir Visnovsky.

For the Canadiens, they also lost their last game. That game also came against the Ottawa Senators. It's almost like the Senators all of a sudden decided to be good at hockey (or that Paul MacLean is overrated or that they lucked out by signing the second coming of Tim Thomas for next to nothing). Montreal has an extra night's rest to work with which doesn't necessarily bode well for the Islanders.

Will the NYI prevail or will the Carey Prices get the victory?
