At the Rink: Canadiens at Islanders

Forward Ryan Strome will be a healthy scratch for the New York Islanders on Saturday when they play the Montreal Canadiens at Nassau Coliseum.

Strome has played in all 70 games for the Islanders this season, his second in the NHL. He's set career-highs in goals (14), assists (29), and points (43), but has just one point in his past five games. Forward Frans Nielsen, who missed his first game this season as a healthy scratch Friday against the Ottawa Senators, will return to the lineup in place of Strome.

Coach Jack Capuano also said Michal Neuvirth will start in goal for the Islanders. Jaroslav Halak made 26 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Senators.

Brassard: Rangers-Islanders rivalry fun for players

New York Rangers center Derick Brassard joined NHL Live to preview their Metropolitan Division showdown against the New York Islanders on Tuesday at Nassau Coliseum (7 p.m. ET; NHLN-US, TVA, SN1 ,SNO, MSG 2, MSG+).

The Rangers are 1-3-0 against the Islanders this season but won the last game 6-5 on Feb. 16 after overcoming three two-goal deficits.

"I think our rivalry against the Islanders is actually fun for the players and I think for the fans," Brassard said. "It's not a rivalry that's bloody and we're trying to kill each other out there. I think it's really good hockey. They have a good team and so do we. It's a lot of fun playing in those games.

"We were down 2-0 in the first period in the last game there and we found a way to come back and get a win. Since then we've been playing some really good hockey. I think [Tuesday] it's going be another great game against them. We know how important points are in the standings."
