Both teams are coming off losses, though Philadelphia’s may have been a bit more extreme.

Tonight, the New York Islanders host the Philadelphia Flyers at the Coliseum. It will be the first game in which the Islanders welcome fans that are not healthcare workers. Even though it’s only 1,391 people, I’m sure that we’ll hear them loud and clear.

In his media availability this morning, head coach Barry Trotz announced that everyone besides Noah Dobson would be available to him tonight.

As it turns out, Dobson remained on the daily COVID-19 protocol list when it was released this afternoon at 5:00 p.m.

Semyon Varlamov led out the team, which means that he will start in goal tonight.

Andrew Gross usually tweets out, right at 6:29 p.m., the goaltending match-ups, and then the line rushes if he’s at the game. But because he did not do the former, we may not be getting line rushes tweeted to us. So we will have to wait to see who Trotz dressed tonight.

UPDATE: And of course, right after this publishes, Arthur Staple tweets out the roster changes. Michael Dal Colle draws back in, presumably on the third line. Sebastian Aho gets another run.
