Tonight, our Islanders travel to Minnesota looking to rebound from Saturdays loss to the Blues as they faceoff against Thomas Vanek and the Minnesota Wild.
The goalie match up features Jaroslav Halak in net for the Islanders. Meanwhile, Niklas Backstrom will be in net for the Wild.
The Islanders will see some familiar faces tonight as former Islanders Thomas Vanek, Nino Niederreiter, and Jared Spurgeon all call Minnesota home.
The Islanders will be making a few lineup changes in advance of the game tonight. Lubomir Visnovsky will return tonight. To make room for him, Matt Donovan will return to the press box. Up front, there will be one change as well. With Casey Cizikas out of the lineup, Josh Bailey will be back in after missing two games with a foot injury.
