Neither Thomas Hickey nor Anders Lee skated at the Islanders practice on Wednesday afternoon. Hickey is dealing with a lower-body issue while Lee is still getting over the illness that kept him out of the lineup on Tuesday.
Interim Coach Doug Weight said he'll see how both players feel on Thursday to see if they can play that night vs. Montreal.
Anthony Beauvillier is expected to draw back into the lineup on Thursday vs. Montreal after sitting out Tuesday's game. Beauvillier blocked a shot on Sunday and Weight said the rookie was sore Tuesday, so he wanted to give him time to heal up.
Weight also said Thomas Greiss will start in goal vs. Montreal.
