Pre Game: Isles @ Ottawa

Tonight, after yesterdays embarassment, our Islanders travel to Ottawa to take on the Senators.

The goalie matchup tonight will feature Craig Anderson for Ottawa and for the Islanders Rick Dipietro will get the start after Nabokovs bad performance yesterday.

The Islanders have once again made what lineup shake ups they are capable of.  Forward David Ullstrom will be scratched again tonight.  Taking his spot in the lineup will be center Marty Reasoner.  Reasoner will be centering a line with Okposo and Grabner on the wings.  Meanwhile, Keith Aucoin will move to the right wing of the Bailey and Nielsen line.  On defense, Thomas Hickey will step into the lineup in place of Brian Strait.

For Ottawa, Peter Regin and Milan Michalek are unavailable tonight.  With Spezza and Karlsson out for Ottawa the loss of Michalek is a big one.
