Tonight, our Islanders travel to Winnipeg to open a 4 game road trip against Evander Kane and the Jets.
The goalie match up tonight features Anders Nilsson for the Islanders and Ondrej Pavelec for the Jets.
The Islanders lineup will be a bit different tonight as Matt Martin will return to the lineup after missing the last three game following the end of the Olympic break with a lower body injury. Additionally, with his trade earlier this afternoon Andrew MacDonald will not be in the lineup tonight. On defense I would expect to see both Martinek and Carkner. Up front, the lineup has yet to be announced beyond Martin. However, it is expected that Thomas Vanek will play should be not be traded before game time.
