Isles take on Bruins rookies again tonight

by Katrina Doell / New York Islanders


Today, the Islanders look to get one back from the Bruins rookies. Islanders head coach Jack Capuano chalked last night's 8-5 loss up to sloppy play on special teams. Check out the recap here. Post game video here.

There was no morning skate, but goalies worked out again with coaches on the ice. Capuano announced that Anders Nilsson would be the starter in goal.

Rhett Rakhshani suffered a concussion in the first period and is being reevaluated today.

Tickets are still available. Click here to get yours now. The game will be streamed on newyorkislanders.com. MSG.com will also carry the stream. Live updates and breaking news will be posted, as always on Twitter @NYIslanders.

If you are coming to the game, there will be an #IslesMeetup on the lower concourse outside of Doolin's. RSVP here.
