Game Notes

  • Tonight’s matchup is the third between the Islanders and the Hurricanes this season. The Canes have been dominated by Thomas Greiss and the Islanders thus far, earning only one point in two games.
  • Greiss started in yesterday’s win against the Devils, so the Hurricanes will most likely see Robin Lehner tonight.
  • With an electric win last night against Florida, the Hurricanes closed out their season long six game homestand with a 4-1-1 record.
  • Curtis McElhinney saved 34 out of 35 shots in last night’s win, earning himself third star honors.
  • And ICYMI, Jordan Martinook earned his first career hat trick last night and had some awesome things to say about it:

Lines and Rosters (Updated 5:30 pm)

With a favorable outcome last night, it’s safe to assume that the forward lines will remain the same tonight in New York. But on the back end, Trevor Carrick will draw into the lineup after being recalled from Charlotte last night after the team announced that Haydn Fleury suffered a concussion after taking a hit in the third period of last night’s game. Also announced, after tallying three straight wins in net, Curtis McElhinney will get the night off and Scott Darling will start tonight, backed up by Petr Mrazek.

Injuries and Scratches: Haydn Fleury (concussion), Curtis McElhinney (healthy), Brett Pesce (IR – lower body)

The Islanders come off of a game against New Jersey last night in which they blew three separate one-goal leads but still won in overtime, thanks in part to great play from Thomas Greiss. Greiss will probably sit out tonight, replaced by Robin Lehner, though that has not been confirmed.
