Thomas Greiss is in goal, Marek Zidlicky is back in for Brian Strait, and Cal Clutterbuck will "try" to play, per the coach via Arthur Staple of Newsday. On the maybe bright side: The Isles are facing Jimmy Howard rather than Petr Mrazek.
Dylan Larkin is +25 and Pavel Datsyuk is +14 and Riley Sheahan is minus-14 and every other Red Wing is somewhere else very different and that is kind of interesting even in a "eh but plus/minus" day.
Islanders (29-18-9, 4th/Metro) vs. Red Wings (29-18-6, 2nd/New Atlantic)
