Pre Game: Islanders @ Oilers

photo by stadiumjourney

Tonight, our Islanders look to win their fourth in a row and third on this long road trip as they travel to Edmonton to take on Taylor Hall and the Oilers. 

The goalie match up tonight features Jaroslav Halak in net for the Islanders.  Tonight will be Halak's 300th NHL start between the pipes.  Meanwhile, Ben Scrivens will be between the pipes for the Oilers.  Although the Oilers have struggled, Scrivens has been one of the bright spots for the team recently with a .926 save percentage in his last three starts.

There will be no lineup changes tonight for the Islanders so Michael Grabner will continue to be a scratch for the time being along with Brian Strait, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton.
