After a day off on Monday, the New York Islanders were rested and recharged for Tuesday's practice at Northwell Health Ice Center.
The day off was especially good for Anthony Beauvillier, who returned to practice after missing Saturday's game and Sunday's skate with a lower-body injury. Beauvillier blocked a pair of heavy shots off his right leg late in Friday's loss to Dallas.
Josh Ho-Sang did not practice with the team on Tuesday, sitting out with an illness, according to Head Coach Doug Weight.
As for Shane Prince, Weight said the injured forward could shed his non-contact jersey as early as Wednesday, marking another step forward in his recovery from a lower-body injury. Prince is about three months removed from having surgery on his injury and his original timeline called for him to miss four-to-six months.
"He's really approached his rehab hard and he's feeling good," Weight said.
