Nikolay Kulemin returns to the Islanders lineup on Saturday, rejoining the team after missing seven games with an upper-body injury. He will replace Connor Jones, who had played in three straight games for the Islanders.

The Islanders need to win their final two games of the season to have a chance of qualifying for the playoffs, as they'd need Toronto to lose their last two games.
