Potential Lineups

New York Islanders

We may see the Islanders make some changes with the lack of offensive power in Tampa on Saturday. This matchup is a must-win game for the Isles if they want to win the Metropolitan division.

It looks like Ross Johnston will be back in the lineup, to add a physical presence, in place of rookie sensation Kieffer Bellows. It also looks like Pulock is good to go tonight!

We also expect the Islanders to keep their goalie rotation tonight, with Thomas Greiss in the net.

The Islanders should keep that same lineup tonight:

Lee-Barzal-Eberle
Beauvillier-Nelson-Bailey
Johnston-Brassard-Dal Colle
Martin-Cizikas-Komarov

Leddy-Boychuck
Toews-Pulock
Dobson-Mayfield

Greiss (Varlamov)

Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals will make some changes after losing big on Saturday. One change that is expected tonight is in between the pipes.

We expect Ilya Samsonov to mind the crease tonight after Braden Holtby let up seven goals on 25 shots against Philly.

We expect the Caps will keep the same lineup from their morning skate:

Ovechkin-Backstrom-Oshie
Vrana-Kuznetsov-Wilson
Hagelin-Eller-Panik
Leipsic-Dowd-Hathaway

Kempny-Carlson
Orlov-Fehervary
Siegenthaler-Jensen

Samsonov (Holtby)
