Tonight, our Islanders head on the road for the first time this season to start a five game road trip. The trip starts at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto against Phil Kessel and the Maple Leafs.
The goaltender match up tonight will be Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders and Ben Scrivens for the Leafs.
According to Arthur Staple, the Islanders lineup will likely be the same as it has been to start the season meaning Radek Martinek and Thomas Hickey will remain in the press box. Also, forward Eric Boulton will spend his second consecutive game in the press box.
However, the Leafs will be down one key player tonight though. Last night, top 6 forward Joffrey Lupul was injured after taking a Dion Phaneuf slap shot to the forearm. According to various reports, Lupul is out six weeks with a fractured forearm.
