The Islanders will welcome to the Coliseum the Boston Bruins for the second time this season. The first time, the Isles took the game 1–0, thanks to a late fluky goal. I expect another tight defensive battle tonight.
Semyon Varlamov (5-2-2, 1.98 goals-against average, .929 save pct) for #Isles vs. Tuukka Rask (2.31, .906) for the #Bruins as teams on the ice for warmups here at the Coliseum.— Andrew Gross (@AGrossNewsday) February 13, 2021
Isles 1-0 win over Bruins (10-1-2) at Coli on Jan. 18 is B's only regulation loss.
Both teams will send out their no. 1 goalies. Leo Komarov will be the rare guy that takes NHL ice after clearing waivers the same day.
