Tonight, our Islanders continue their three game set with the Devils as they travel to New Jersey tonight.
Evgeni Nabakov will start in net for the Islanders tonight against Marty Brodeur for the Devils. I was a little surprised that after his shutout Sunday that Anders Nilsson wasnt given a second start in a row.
Michael Grabner will once again be scratched, along with Dylan Reese. They had been getting over the flu, but they are now listed as healthy scratches. So the Islanders will dress the same lineup as Sundays game. Meanwhile, Alexei Ponikarovsky will be returning to the lineup for the Devils. Alexei didn't play in the game on Sunday.
After Sundays 1-0 shutout loss, I am sure the Devils will come out firing. So hopefully Nabby and the defense are ready for that and are able to help the team to continue this streak.
