The New York Islanders are back on Nassau Veteran Memorial Coliseum for the next time in two nights as they take on the the very last position Los Angeles Kings. This is a program reduction for the Islanders, but the Kings are an really negative hockey workforce. The Islanders are coming off of a shutout a single to very little reduction to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Islanders are actively playing their next sport in two nights following the bye week when the Kings have not performed due to the fact the January 21st. The Islanders are bizarrely great in back-to-back games having said that and once once more the Kings do not existing the same challenge as the Lightning did. Jonathan Quick will be in net, but he’s been rather mortal this calendar year even when he is healthy.
Meanwhile the Islanders will flip to Robin Lehner for tonight’s contest. Greiss was stellar once once more very last evening as he didn’t give up any ambitions until finally the shootout and has permitted a single target in his very last 99 pictures. Lehner has been stellar in his very own proper and the Islanders are exceptionally fortunate to have two goalies that are nicely earlier mentioned replacement degree on their roster going back and forth.
No lineup adjustments are projected for tonight’s sport, but that could normally adjust provided the mother nature of these back-to-back contests. Assuming the lineups stay the same, that would leave Tom Kuhnhackl, Ross Johnston, and Luca Sbisa as the healthy scratches tonight. Even though the Islanders have accomplished fairly nicely and assistance that to start with position position, the electrical power perform has been a problem and they may want to make a adjust if they definitely want to be contenders.
Puck fall is at 7:00 P.M. E.S.T.
