Tom Kuhnhackl took a maintenance day on Friday, per Islanders Head Coach Barry Trotz. 

Trotz said Kuhnhackl had a slight strain on Thursday, but is expected to be in the lineup during Saturday's game against Boston. Kuhnhackl has four points (3G, 1A) in 16 games this season, with all three goals coming in the past six games. With Kuhnhackl absent, Ross Johnston took line rushes with Derick Brassard and Michael Dal Colle.
