Pre Game: Devils @ Islanders

For the fourth time already this season, tonight the Devils travel to the Coliseum to take on John Tavares and our Islanders.

The goalie matchup tonight features Johan Hedberg for the Devils, and Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders.

David Ullstrom returns to the lineup tonight for the Islanders.  After playing the last game and fighting former Islanders Aaron Asham, enforcer Eric Boulton will sit this one out alongside Thomas Hickey and Marty Reasoner.

For the Devils, defenseman Henrik Tallinder will return to their lineup tonight.  Mark Fayne will sit, Tallinder last played on February 2nd.

If you remember, in their last meeting on Superbowl Sunday Hedberg pitched a shutout against the Islanders in a third period that was headlined by a terrible penalty call on Brian Strait

Can the Islanders break through against Hedberg who is 8-0-2 in his last ten starts?  Find out tonight on MSG+ at 7:00.
