Tonight, our Islanders travel to Chicago to take on Patrick Kane and the defending Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks.
The goalie matchup tonight features Kevin Poulin for the Islanders and Nikolai Khabibulin for the Blackhawks.
The Islanders lineup will look a little different tonight as Cal Clutterbuck will make his return to the team after missing the first three games of the season recovering from a skate laceration he suffered in the Islanders first pre season game on September 18th. To make room for him in the lineup, rookie Brock Nelson will be a healthy scratch tonight. After the birth of his second child this morning, Matt Moulson did manage to make it to Chicago and will be in the lineup tonight for the Islanders.
