Players to Watch
Pageau’s arrival has definitely sparked well with Islander fans. He scored in his Isle’s debut and he stuck up for Michael Dal Colle when he was buried by Jacob Trouba. This is what fans love to see: Someone who steps right in and makes an instant impact.
Tonight is the second time we get to see Pageau in Islander colors and the first time on the road.
It will be interesting to see if Pageau will have the same impact as he did in his first game. His goal-scoring and leadership can definitely help the Islanders in this tough matchup.
Schwartz has been on an absolute tear as of late. In his past five games he has six points (2 goals, 4 assists). He has also been a +7 in those games.
He is definitely the danger man for the Blues. His speed, quickness and vision definitely make him fun to watch.
If the Islanders want to have to success in this game, they must shut Schwartz down. If not, he will cause chaos in the Islanders defensive zone.
