Nick Leddy is back in the lineup for the Islanders and will likely play with Travis Hamonic.
Thomas Greiss will start in goal, while the forward corps will the stay the same.
The health of the New York Islanders (2-3-0) blue line is the biggest question mark heading into Sunday's tilt with the Minnesota Wild (3-1-1). Ryan Pulock suffered a lower-body injury on Friday night that will keep him out for four-to-six weeks, while Nick Leddy's status for Sunday is unknown, as he's day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
The Islanders are looking to get back to .500, while the Wild are wrapping up a back-to-back set on Sunday, after losing 2-1 in OT to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. In recent years, this has been a favorable matchup for the Islanders, as they swept the season series last year and are 6-2-1 in their last nine games against the Wild.
