Tonight, our Islanders open their first round playoff series as they travel to Washington to take on Alex Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals.
The goalie match up tonight features Jaroslav Halak for the Islanders. Meanwhile, Braden Holtby will man the crease for Washington.
The Islanders will be without Travis Hamonic who was hurt in the game against the Penguins last Friday. Exactly how long he will be out is still unknown. The Islanders lineup up front for tonight has yet to be revealed. I would expect it to be pretty similar to what we have seen the last few games. Although, I wouldn't be surprised if at least one of Matt Martin or Frans Nielsen made it back in for tonights contest.
