The New York Islanders visit the Detroit Red Wings Saturday afternoon with their blueline intact.

Johnny Boychuk is back in the lineup for the first time in 2016, having hit IR after the New Year's Eve game in Buffalo. To make room on the roster with Boychuk coming off of IR, Scott Mayfield was returned to Bridgeport.

Jaroslav Halak is in goal.
