Pre Game: Isles @ Penguins

Tonight, the Islanders travel to the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh to take on Sidney Crosby and the Penguins.

The goalie matchup tonight features Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders and Jeff Zatkoff for the Penguins.

Kris Letang is set to make his season debut tonight for the Penguins.

Meanwhile, with the injury to Brian Strait, Radek Martinek will make his season debut for the Islanders tonight.  This also means that Matt Carkner will be in the lineup again tonight partnered with Matt Donovan.  With Michael Grabner serving the second game of his two game suspension tonight the forwards will look the same as they did in Tuesdays OT loss to Vancouver.

Zatkoff struggled in his only start thus far this season for the Penguins.  So, a bounce back game from Nabokov could put the Islanders in a good spot to get a much needed two points tonight.
