Islanders vs. Canucks: Odds, Players to Watch, Lineups, TV and more
The Islanders are expected to only make two lineup changes to the lineup they had for Saturday’s heartbreaking loss against Carolina. 17 out of the 18 skaters in that lineup are expected to remain the same and the Islanders are expected to make a change in net.
The first change we are expected to see is in between the pipes. The Isles have rotated goalies recently and tonight is no different. Semyon Varlamov will come in for Greiss, who played well but got the loss on Saturday.
Next, as shown above, it looks like Cal Clutterbuck will come in for Michael Dal Colle. This will then move Leo Komarov up to the third line and Andrew Ladd up to the second line.
Anthony Beauvillier will move down to the wing with Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Komarov.
The defensive core is expected to stay the same tonight.
The Islanders are expected to lineup like this tonight:
It is expected the Canucks will have the same lineup as they did on Sunday night against Columbus.
Vancouver is led by their top line of Miller, Pettersson, and Toffoli. Tyler Toffoli was acquired in a blockbuster trade with the Kings. In return, the Kings received Schaller, Madden and two draft picks.
J.T. Miller is tied for the team lead in goals with Elias Pettersson (27 goals) and tied for the team lead with Hughes in assists (44 assists), but leads the team in points, with 71 points.
Unfortunately, the Canucks have suffered their fair share of injuries and will be missing key players tonight:
Vancouver will be without star forward Brock Boeser. Boeser has been out since February 8th due to a rib injury and he might return before the end of the regular season.
Also, the Canucks will be missing Micheal Ferland (out for season), Josh Leivo (out for regular season) and Jacob Markstrom (out).
The Canucks are expected to lineup like this:
