The New York Islanders are back on Barclays ice for what we now know might not be the last game this season there. They are set to host the Edmonton Oilers who just moved Cam Talbot and Ryan Spooner out for Anthony Stolarz and Sam Gagner. The Islanders are still in first in the Metropolitan. The Oilers sit in sixth in the Pacific.
We think Robin Lehner is starting tonight, but we still don’t know for sure. Greiss’ has taken a commanding lead on Lehner in GSAA and dSV percentage. Greiss had a shutout in his last contest, but the Islanders have been rotating starts.
Thomas Hickey started a conditioning stint in Bridgeport today and will be back soon, but for now the lineup is unchanged. Ross Johnston, Tom Kuhnhackl, and Luca Sbisa are scratches. Andrew Ladd should return to action soon as well.
Game time is at 7:00 P.M. E.S.T.
