This afternoon, our Islanders travel to Detroit as they faceoff against Pavel Datsyuk and the Red Wings.
The goalie match up today features Chad Johnson in net for the Islanders, giving Jaroslav Halak a much needed day off. Meanwhile, with Jimmy Howard on IR, Peter Mrazek will be between the pipes for Detroit.
Lubomir Visnovsky will return to the lineup this afternoon after being activated off IR this morning. With his return, Brian Strait will return to the press box. Additionally, Casey Cizikas status is a game time decision. If he is unable to go, Colin McDonald will dress in his spot.
