Tonight, our Islanders finish off their brief 2 game road trip traveling to Tampa Bay to take on Steven Stamkos and the Lightning.
The goalie match up tonight features Evgeni Nabokov for the Islanders. Meanwhile, Ben Bishop will get the nod in net for the Lightning.
The Islanders will ice the same lineup as Tuesdays 5-4 victory over the Hurricanes. Although, with the Islanders calling up John Persson it is possible that Kyle Okposo who has been banged up may need a game off.
Meanwhile, this will be the first time the Islanders go head to head with Tampa since the deadline day deal that saw the Lightning send Martin St Louis to the Rangers in exchange for Ryan Callahan and two draft picks.
