Evgeni Nabakov will be in net for the Islanders tonight and the same lineup for Tuesday will be out for the netminder tonight.
It should be interesting to see how Tavares responds returning to Ottawa less then a week after being there for all stars.
Also, I feel like that if Rhett can play on a consistent basis like he did the other night, he might get a longer look then expected.
I read the other night that right now the Islanders are 13 points behind Ottawa but still have 4 games against them as well as 4 games at hand. So for those that still have faith we can make a run this season a win tonight would be vital to that cause.
