Tonight, our Islanders return home for a quick one game homestand as they try and exact a little revenge on Matt Duchene and the Avalanche after they were defeated by them 5-0 in Colorado earlier this month.
The goalie match up tonight features Semyon Varlamov for the Avalanche. Meanwhile, Jaroslav Halak will be in net for the Islanders.
The Islanders will have a couple lineup changes coming tonight. Cory Conacher will be back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch the last two games. He will be taking Eric Boulton's spot in the lineup after Boulton reportedly tweaked something in practice. Additionally, Johnny Boychuk is expected to return tonight after sitting out Saturdays 1-0 win versus Arizona.
