The preseason rolls on as the New York Islanders take on the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night at NYCB Live at 7 p.m. Tickets are still available, but the game will be streamed live on NewYorkIslanders.com. 

The Islanders are 3-1-0 in preseason action, winning three straight before dropping a 4-3 contest to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. One of those wins came against the Red Wings - a 4-3 OT win on Friday - as these teams meet for the second time this preseason.

Monday's game marks the preseason debut of Cal Clutterbuck, who will skate alongside his regular linemates Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas. The Isles wanted to ease Clutterbuck's transition back to game action after his recovery from offseason back surgery.

"I needed the first week to just kind of get up to speed, but I've felt good the last three, four or five days and am ready to get in there and get going," Clutterbuck said. "You want to go into the regular season with all the mental rust and detail rust worn off you and this is the time to do it."

That's one of the solidified line combos Barry Trotz plans to start the season with, while the other is the trio of Anders Lee, Mathew Barzal and Jordan Eberle, all of whom are in the lineup on Monday. The Lee-Barzal-Eberle line skated together on Saturday, combining for 15 shots and a goal
