Tonight, the struggling Flyers pay a visit to the Coliseum to take on Frans Nielsen and our Islanders.
The goalie matchup tonight features Steve Mason for the Flyers and Kevin Poulin for the Islanders.
The Islanders lineup will look a little different tonight as Michael Grabner will be returning from his two game suspension he was handed for his hit on Nathan Gerbe last Saturday. Eric Boulton will also be dressing for his second game of the season tonight. To make room for them in the lineup tonight, forwards Brock Nelson and Colin McDonald will serve as the teams healthy scratches.
The Islanders website is encouraging people to wear lavender tonight to support hockey fights cancer. This is a great worthwhile cause and something that should be supported not only in October but all year round.
If you can't make it to the Coliseum tonight, tune in at 7:00 to see if the Islanders can build on their big win over the Penguins last night.
