Pre Game: Islanders @ Capitals

Tomorrow, our Islanders travel to Washington for an afternoon matinee with Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals.

The goalie match up will see Braden Holtby likely in net for Washington.  Meanwhile, the Islanders goalie is a tossup.  Personally, I am expecting Chad Johnson to get the nod tomorrow with Jaroslav Halak getting the nod on Sunday going for the team record for most wins in a regular season by a goalie.  However, I could easily see it being flip flopped with tomorrow being a divisional game it is more important than Sunday against a western conference foe.

With Mikhail Grabovski out, the Islanders lineup will see at least one change for tomorrow afternoons contest.  Replacing Grabovski will be Kael Mouillierat who got called up from Bridgeport earlier this morning.  Line combos as of now are unclear, check out Arthur Staple or the Islanders on twitter tomorrow to see those.
