Pre Game: Isles @ Rangers

 photo by tickpick

Tonight, our Islanders look to right their ship as they travel to NYC to take on the rival Rangers.

The goalie match up tonight features Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders and Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers.

The Rangers will have a new addition to the lineup tonight as they recalled forward JT Miller from Hartford after there shootout loss against the Penguins the other night.  They returned defenseman Dylan Mcilrath and former Islander Aaron Asham to Hartford.  Miller will serve as the teams third line center tonight.

The Islanders lineup will look a bit different tonight as Peter Regin and Aaron Ness will join Colin McDonald as the teams healthy scratches tonight.  Replacing them in the lineup are Casey Cizikas and Matt Carkner.  This will be Casey's first game in over a week after suffering a jaw injury attempting a hit in the Islanders loss against the Coyotes last week.  McDonald not being in the lineup means that Eric Boulton will be in the lineup for the Islanders.
