Tonight is the night we have been waiting for since this game was announced during last years lockout shortened season. Tonight, our Islanders go head to head with the rival Rangers at Yankee Stadium as the New York branch of the NHL Stadium Series concludes. If you will be joining me and many others at the Stadium tonight, make sure to bundle up as it is reportedly going to feel like between 6 and 10 degrees when the puck drops tonight.
The goalie match up tonight features Henrik Lundqvist for the Rangers. Meanwhile, it appears that Evgeni Nabokov will make his first start for the Islanders coming back from injury tonight.
The Rangers will be icing the same lineup they did in Sundays victory over the Devils.
The Islanders lineup as of now is unknown. I wouldn't be shocked to see Matt Donovan in the lineup tonight.
