Michael Grabner - Frans Nielsen - Kyle Okposo
Brian Rolston - Josh Bailey - Blake Comeau
Matt Martin - Marty Reasoner - Jay Pandolfo

Mark Streit - Steve Staios

Evgeni Nabokov will start in net. Rick DiPietro will serve as the backup.
 
Islanders coach Jack Capuano said defenseman Milan Jurcina (groin) and forward Nino Niederreiter (groin) are getting close, but neither is ready to return to the lineup. Jurcina practiced with the team Monday, and Niederreiter could re-join his teammates in practice next week.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
