The New York Islanders are all set to play their second game in two nights. Last night they defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in what was just another game against a team that doesn’t look like they’ll have home ice advantage in the playoffs (unlike the Islanders). Tonight they’ll try to ward off the Washington Capitals who are currently two points back of the Islanders and have played one more game.
Robin Lehner played quite well last night and will get a game of rest. Thomas Greiss will start in this one with Lehner backing him up. The Islanders currently have two goalies who are top ten in G.S.A.A.
No lineup changes will be made for tonight’s lineup. That means that Thomas Hickey will be a somewhat healthy scratch for tonight’s game. Ross Johnston, Tom Kuhnhackl, Luca Sbisa, and Dennis Seidenberg will also watch from the press box.
Tonight’s game is at 7:00 P.M. E.S.T.
