The New York Islanders are in Nashville tonight for the middle game of a three-game road trip.
Thomas Greiss is in goal, but little else was to be declared about the lineup before game time. One definite update, however: Mikhail Grabovski is out.
The winger, who played just one game since returning from IR, was sent back to Long Island after reporting "a couple of issues" the day after the game in Pittsburgh.
Islanders (38-21-9, 3rd/Metro) @ Predators (35-22-13, )
8 p.m. EDT | MSG+
[Rubber meets road] Arena
After briefly falling out of playoff position, the Predators are hot hot hot: They've lost in regulation only once in their past 16 games (10-1-5), and return home tonight from a five-game Western trip.
The Isles need a win to reclaim their brief moment holding second place in the Metropolitan Division.
