    Bailey-Nielsen-Okposo

    Kennedy-Nelson-Lee

    Martin-Cizikas-Clutterbuck

    Now, obviously with Eric Boulton being put into the lineup tonight in place of Tyler Kennedy, the lines will have to be altered a bit, but the first and second lines are what need to be focused on.

    If the Islanders can find some consistent production over the next few games from these lines it’ll be huge because the last thing you want are lines being constantly put into a blender over a seven game playoff series.
