New York Islanders vs. New York Rangers [Game #42 Thread]

Oliver Wahlstrom is back in the lineup and Leo Komarov is not. Breathe.

The New York Islanders welcome to the Coliseum the New York Rangers, again. Last time out, the Rangers outplayed the Isles en route to a 4–1 win, so expect the Islanders to look a bit more refreshed tonight.

Oliver Wahlstrom has drawn back into the lineup in favor of Leo Komarov. Thank heavens.

Also, I was hoping that Kyle Palmieri would get the first run on the top line with Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle, but it appears that Travis Zajac gets that turn.

That likely means that Wahlstrom will skate with Palmieri and Jean-Gabriel Pageau, unless Anthony Beauvillier dropped down to LW3 and Palmieri took his spot at LW2.

Unfortunately, we do not have more information to determine that. However, we do know that Ilya Sorokin will face off against his buddy Igor Shesterkin tonight.

Let’s beat their asses.
