The New York Islanders are going for their second win of the season when they host the St. Louis Blues in a matinee action (1 p.m., MSG+, MSG GO). The Islanders picked up their first win of the season on Saturday night against the Buffalo Sabres.
Monday is Kids Day at Barclays Center. The first 2K kids age 13 and under will receive a tin Sparky lunch box.
UPDATE: Thomas Greiss will start in goal. Same lineup from Saturday's win.
Cal Clutterbuck is day-to-day with a lower-body injury and missed Saturday's win against Buffalo. Clutterbuck skated during Sunday's practice, but his status is unknown for Monday's game. Andrew Ladd assumed Clutterbuck's spot on the penalty kill against Buffalo, while Doug Weight shuffled his third and fourth lines.

Alan Quine also skated at Sunday's light practice, but is not ready to return to the Islanders lineup. Weight has yet to announce his goalie for Monday's matinee.
ISLANDERS PROJECTED LINES:
CALVIN DE HAAN
BY THE NUMBERS:
237 - goals for John Tavares, eighth all-time in Islanders history. Tavares moved into sole possession of eighth - passing Bobby Nystrom - with two goals on Saturday and the captain is one goal shy of tying Bob Bourne for seventh on the franchise list.
498 - points for Andrew Ladd, who is two shy of 500. Ladd picked up an assist on Casey Cizikas' shorthanded goal on Saturday for his first point of the season.
3-1-0 - the Islanders record against the Blues in their last four contests, including two wins at Barclays Center.
The Blues are 2-0-0 to start the season, picking up wins over the Pittsburgh Penguins and Dallas Stars.
Alex Pietrangelo (2G, 2A), Brayden Schenn (1G, 3A) and Jaden Schwartz (1G, 3A) are tied for the team lead in points. Schenn was the Blues marquee offseason acquisition, sending Jori Lehtera, a 2017 1st-round pick and a 2018 conditional pick to the Flyers on draft night. Schenn centered the Blues' second line against the Stars on Saturday.
Jake Allen has started both of the Blues first two games and is the likely starter on Monday.
Tage Thompson, son of Bridgeport Sound Tigers coach Brent Thompson, made the Blues roster out of training camp and made his NHL debut last Wednesday vs Pittsburgh.
