See the rosters as the Islanders take on the Red Wings in preseason action in Detroit

The New York Islanders take on the Detroit Red Wings in preseason action on Friday night, as the two teams tangle at Little Caesars Arena at 7:30 p.m. The game will be streamed on - via - but will be restricted to MSG's broadcast area.

The Islanders are 2-0-0 in preseason play, but Friday's tilt marks the first game since the team trimmed the training camp roster to 52 on Thursday. The Isles are now skating as two groups instead of three and the non-game group, which skated at Northwell Health Ice Center on Friday, will likely make up the roster for Saturday's exhibition contest in New Jersey.
