This evening, our Islanders prepare to play host to Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals.
The goalie match up features Braden Holtby for the Capitals. Meanwhile, Evgeni Nabokov will get the start in net for the Islanders.
The Islanders lineup will look a bit different today with forward Michael Grabner returning from injury for this evenings contest. To make room for him, Johan Sundstrom will take a seat and serve as a healthy scratch. Grabner will play with Nelson and Clutterbuck, according to Newsday.
