Pre Game: Islanders @ Canucks

photo by arenanetwork

Tonight, our Islanders continue their long road trip as they travel to Vancouver to take on Henrik Sedin and the Canucks.  If you recall, the last Islanders visit to Vancouver featured a memorable 3rd period scoring outburst that resulted in an Islanders victory.

The goalie match up tonight features Jaroslav Halak back in net for the Islanders after Sundays rough outing against Edmonton.  Meanwhile, Eddie Lack will be between the pipes for the Canucks.

The Islanders lineup will see some changes tonight.  With Lubomir Visnovsky going on IR, Matt Donovan will return to the lineup tonight.  Additionally, Jack Capuano told media today that Josh Bailey who had been playing with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo is day to day with a lower body injury.  Michael Grabner, returning from injury will take Baileys spot in the lineup and at least to start the game tonight is expected to be skating with Tavares and Okposo.
