Tonight, our Islanders return home after a winless three game road trip to play host to Andrew Ladd and the Jets.
The goalie match up tonight features former Islander Al Montoya for the Jets and Kevin Poulin for the Islanders. This marks the Islanders 12th game against a teams backup goalie this season. Additionally, 6 of the teams 8 wins have come against the opposing teams backup.
The Islanders lineup will look a little different tonight as Aaron Ness, Peter Regin, and Pierre Marc Bouchard will make their returns to the lineup. Thomas Hickey will also dress on defense for the Islanders tonight. To make room for those three in the lineup, Eric Boulton, Colin McDonald, and Radek Martinek will serve as the teams healthy scratches tonight.
