Tonight, our New York Islanders play host to Eric Staal and the Carolina Hurricanes.
After struggling the last few games, Evgeni Nabokov will get a game off tonight and Rick Dipietro will get the nod between the pipes. The Hurricanes haven't announced their starting goalie yet.
The Islanders will be rolling with the same lineup tonight that managed over 40 shots on Saturday night against Buffalo.
The Islanders, losers of 4 straight are looking to get off the snide and do something they haven't been able to do in recent years and minimize losing streaks. Having that happen would be a very small sign of progress for this "rebuild."
