Update: According to Arthur Staple, Travis Hamonic is likely to play tonight.  Although, as a precaution Radek Martinek is going to skate during warmups.


Tonight, our Islanders continue their five game road trip as they travel to the Consol Energey Center in Pittsburgh to take on Sidney Crosby and the Penguins.

Tonight's goalie match-up will feature Marc Andre Fleury for the Penguins and Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders.

Thomas Hickey will play in his second NHL game once again in place of Joe Finley.  Also, after sitting out Sundays game against the Jets, forward Casey Cizikas will return to the lineup in place of enforcer Eric Boulton.

The status of Travis Hamonic is unknown after suffering a sprained ankle at the end of the game against the Jets on Sunday.  If he cant go, Capuano said we will see Radek Martinek make his season debut.

After letting a point slip away against the Jets, tonight is a really big game for the Islanders and a chance at redemption after getting crushed by Pittsburgh on national TV last season.
