Tonight, our Islanders kick off a back to back against Eastern conference foes as they play host to Andrew Hammond and the Ottawa Senators.
Ottawa has yet to announce their goalie yet, but with how remarkable he has been, I would expect the aforementioned Hammond to get the nod. Meanwhile, Jaroslav Halak will get the start for the Islanders.
This game is match up of two of the leagues top rookies with Mike Hoffman on Ottawa and of course Anders Lee with the Islanders. After dueling with Filip Forsberg a few times in the last month, it should be interesting to see how Lee fares with Hoffman tonight.
The Islanders lineup will see one change tonight as after sitting out on Tuesday, Michael Grabner will get back in tonight. Frans Nielsen will sit out tonights game as he is a little banged up.
