Tonight, our Islanders travel to Sunrise looking to keep their hot streak going as they take on Tim Thomas and the Panthers. With a win tonight the Islanders would match their longest road winning streak in team history at 8 games which is something they did two times during the early 80's dynasty years.
The goalie match up tonight features Kevin Poulin for the Islanders and "former Islander" Tim Thomas in net for the Panthers.
The Islanders will have a gaping hole on defense tonight as they will be without Travis Hamonic. Due to dehydration Hamonic was unable to finish Sundays game in Dallas and the report now from Newsday is that he is suffering from an upper body injury. Matt Carkner will be in the lineup tonight taking Hamonic's spot. Beyond that, the lineup will be the same as Sunday's victory over the Stars though.
