Tonight, our Islanders travel to Colorado to take on Matt Duchene and the Avalanche as their 6 game road trip continues.
The goalie match up tonight features Kevin Poulin for the Islanders and Semyon Varlamov for the Avalanche.
There will be one notable omission from the Avalanche lineup tonight as former Islander Pa Parenteau will not dress for Colorado tonight. He is sidelined for 4-6 weeks with an injury. This would've been Parenteau's first game against the Islanders since leaving them following the 11/12 season.
The Islanders lineup will be a bit different tonight as Matt Carkner and Eric Boulton are sitting this one out. That means the two of them will join Peter Regin as the teams healthy scratches tonight. Taking their spots in the lineup will be Matt Donovan who has only played in one game since being recalled from Bridgeport and Colin McDonald.
Both Travis Hamonic and Thomas Vanek will be in the lineup tonight after being shaken up at practice yesterday.
