Well Islanders fans, it's finally here! The final game of the season and the final regular season game in the history of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum! A win by the Islanders over suddenly torrid hot Columbus Blue Jackets would give the Islanders home ice advantage.

The Blue Jackets are a ridiculous 11-0-1 in their last 12, including a shootout win last week over the Islanders. Finally healthy, look for more from them next season. They are starting Curtis McElhinney in goal.

For the Isles, Kevin Poulin has been recalled for the game tonight due to an undisclosed injury to Michal Neuvirth. But Jaroslav Halak gets the start. Travis Hamonic is out due to the injury sustained in their game against the Penguins, so Calvin de Haan draws back in.

Forwards:

Kulemin-Tavares-Okposo
Lee-Nelson-Strome
Grabner-Bailey-Clutterbuck
Boulton-Cizikas-Kennedy

Defense:

Leddy-Boychuk
Strait-de Haan
Hickey-Visnovsky
