The Islanders are going for game no. 18 on their point streak.

The Islanders visit the Ducks for their 2nd game of their California trip and their 22nd game overall. The Islanders, of course, bring with them a franchise-record 17-game point streak.

It will be a match-up of two great goalies in Thomas Greiss (goalie rotation in tact) and Anaheim’s John Gibson (who, by the regular numbers, isn’t doing so hot this season).

It is not entirely known who will line up next Josh Bailey and Michael Dal Colle tonight.

Either way, though, it appears that Otto Koivula will not be dressing tonight, and Bailey will line up at center. It’s a position he hasn’t played much, but it was, at one point, his natural position. Not a bad night to give it another shot.

Last chance for FIGs.
