Pre Game: Flyers @ Islanders

Tomorrow afternoon, our Islanders play host to the Flyers in a Presidents Day matinee at 1:00PM. 

Evgeni Nabokov is expected to start tomorrow for the Islanders.  Check twitter closer to the game tomorrow to find out who will be starting tomorrow for the Flyers.  With their day off today, I would suspect Ilya Bryzgalov to be in net for them tomorrow afternoon.

It was thought that Matt Carkner would return to the lineup in this game.  However, after practice today, Capuano told reporters that he needs a couple more days.  So with that, expect to see Joe Finley in the lineup again for the Islanders.  Since they are playing Philly, there is a chance Boulton gets a look.  However, with the way the team has been playing I don't think they will change it up so the forwards will likely be the same as Saturday.

Going into a stretch of five games in seven days where DP will probably play at least one, getting points against a lackluster Flyers team would be a good start.
