Fresh off a pair of wins in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the New York Islanders are home to host the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday at 7 p.m. in a preseason game at Nassau Coliseum.

The Islanders (2-0-0) beat the Ottawa Senators twice in a split-squad doubleheader on Monday and look to carry that momentum back to Long Island. Tonight's game will be streamed live on Islanders TV and broadcast on WRHU 88.7 FM. Great seats are still available.

Captain John Tavares, leading scorer Kyle Okposo and newcomer Mikhail Grabovski highlight the Islanders lineup. Grabovski scored a goal and an assist in Monday night’s win against the Senators playing on a line with Cory Conacher and Nikolay Kulemin. Conacher is in tonight’s lineup, while Kulemin is not.

Jaroslav Halak and Kevin Poulin will be in goal for the Islanders. Poulin was credited with the win in the back half of Monday’s doubleheader.

Matt Martin, Ville Pokka and Aaron Ness are each making their preseason debuts Wednesday, as the rest of the lineup played in one of the two games on Monday.

Jeff Skinner headlines the Hurricanes roster, along with defenseman Justin Faulk and goaltender Anton Khudobin. Brett Bellemore is the only Hurricane making his preseason debut. The Hurricanes (0-2-0) are looking for their first win of the preseason after dropping games to the Columbus Blue Jackets and Buffalo Sabres.
