OTTAWA -- Here are the projected lineups the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators likely will use when they play Tuesday at Scotiabank Place:

ISLANDERS

Matt Moulson - John Tavares - Brad Boyes

Josh Bailey - Frans Nielsen - Kyle Okposo

Michael Grabner - Keith Aucoin - Marty Reasoner

Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Colin McDonald

Travis Hamonic - Andrew MacDonald

Thomas Hickey - Lubomir Visnovsky

Mark Streit - Joe Finley

Rick DiPietro

Evgeni Nabokov

Injured: Radek Martinek, Matt Carkner, Brian Strait

Scratched: David Ullstrom, Eric Boulton

Coming into Ottawa after a 7-0 blowout loss to the Philadelphia Flyers at home, the Islanders are looking to regroup on this road trip.

"[Monday] was a horrible game for us," Streit said. "If you lose 7-zip, you want to turn the page. We have a big opportunity [Tuesday] to play better. As the captain, didn't really need to say anything [after that loss]. Everybody knew what happened on the ice and how awful we played. I didn't think it was the right moment to step up in the locker room. [Tuesday] on the ice, we need to play a really good game and come together."

SENATORS

Colin Greening - Stephane Da Costa - Daniel Alfredsson

Derek Grant - Kyle Turris - Jakob Silfverberg

Dave Dziurzynski - Zack Smith - Chris Neil

Erik Condra - Mika Zibanejad - Kaspars Daugavins

Andre Benoit - Chris Phillips

Marc Methot - Eric Gryba

Patrick Wiercioch - Sergei Gonchar

Craig Anderson

Ben Bishop

Injured: Milan Michalek, Jason Spezza, Erik Karlsson, Guillaume Latendresse, Jared Cowen

Scratched: Jim O’Brien, Mike Lundin

After injuring his knee in warm-ups Feb. 13, Michalek has yet to skate and the team still had no update on his condition.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
