RALEIGH, N.C. -- New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano is looking for a little more offense from his team against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday. He hinted he might juggle his lines early if they do not generate some scoring chances.
In the meantime, he will make a few adjustments. Colin McDonald likely will return to the lineup to bolster the fourth line. McDonald has missed five straight games with a hip injury.
"The way he plays the game is physical," Capuano said. "It's tough to come back from that [injury] right away, so it's good that we gave him some time. But the last few days he's looked real good in practice and [is] pain-free. It will be good to get him back in there."
