The New York Islanders and the Ottawa Senators are set to play again, this time at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata, Ontario. The Senators took the Islanders too a shootout on Tuesday before falling five to four in a shootout. That game saw Robin Lehner leave with an injury while Greiss picked up the victory.
Lehner isn't for to go here tonight, so Greiss will get the start in net tonight. Christopher Gibson was called up and he'll get relief duty. Gibson has been less than serviceable in the AHL and was terrible in his one game with the Islanders, so hopefully he doesn't need to see any time in net.
No lineup changes are expected here tonight. While it's only the Senators, a lineup featuring Tom Kuhnhackl, Leo Komarov, and Ross Johnston is far from ideal. Hopefully the team regains some semblance of health (or inserts Joshua Ho-Sang) - if the team is struggling against the Senators, that's a bad omen.
Ottawa has their weird start time of 7:30 P.M. E.S.T. Enjoy the game folks!
