Pre Game: Canucks @ Islanders

Tonight, the Vancouver Canucks pay a visit to the old barn in Hempstead to take on John Tavares and our Islanders.

The goalie match up tonight will feature Roberto Luongo for the Canucks and Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders.

The Canucks will be going with a bit of a different look tonight as they will be dressing just 11 forwards and 7 defensemen.  David Booth will be a healthy scratch for them tonight.

Meanwhile, for the Islanders, their lineup will look a bit different as well.  An injury to Lubomir Visnovsky and a suspension to Michael Grabner has opened the door for both Matt Donovan and Brock Nelson to get back in the lineup.  With the top 4 already over extended, having Carkner in the lineup tonight is a little bit surprising because of how much you have to limit his ice time.

Tune in at 7:00 tonight to see if the Islanders can end this 4 game home stand on a high note against a tough team in Vancouver.
