Coming off a 3-0 win against the Capitals in Washington on Tuesday, New York Islanders
coach Jack Capuano
said he didn't see any reason to change his lineup for tonight's game against the Philadelphia Flyers
That means defenseman Dylan Reese
stays in the lineup for a second straight game in place of veteran Steve Staios
Capuano said he's been impressed by what he's seen of Reese since the 6-foot-1, 201-pounder was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Jan. 6.
"In Bridgeport, he's a 26-, 27-minute guy down there, he plays in all situations," said Capuano. "When you play that many minutes in those situations, you work on a lot of things. His game has come a long way."
Here's the rest of what the Islanders' lineup will look like when they hit the ice tonight:
- Frans Nielsen
- PA Parenteau
- John Tavares
- Kyle Okposo
- Josh Bailey
- Brian Rolston
- Jay Pandolfo
- Nino Niederreiter
- Milan Jurcina
- Andrew MacDonald
- Dylan Reese
will start in net, with Al Montoya
backing him up.
