They said it
"I think we're expecting another tough game. For some reason, every time we come into this building it's a tough game for us. We're expecting a battle and I think we want to help out [goalie Connor Hellebuyck] a bit more tonight and tighten things up. But for the most part it should be a good game." -- Jets center Bryan Little
"They have a lot of guys up front that are really dynamic; a lot of size, a lot of speed and they're very skilled as well. It's definitely going to be a challenge for us. We're looking forward to it." -- Islanders defenseman Adam Pelech

Jets coach Paul Maurice said Copp isn't "feeling great, so we'll hold him out." Copp will be replaced by Lemieux and will be evaluated when the Jets return to Winnipeg on Wednesday. … Kulikov will be re-evaluated Friday before the Jets play the St. Louis Blues. He hasn't played since Nov. 9. … Lehner will not be available for the Islanders. "He tweaked a little something," coach Barry Trotz said. "Nothing to be concerned of. Just won't be in tonight. A little bit precautionary I guess." With Lehner unavailable, Gibson was recalled from Bridgeport of the American Hockey League and forward Stephen Gionta was sent to Bridgeport.
The Jets have scored at least four goals in three straight games. … Wheeler has nine points (one goal, eight assits) during a five-game point streak. … New York hasn't scored in its past 15 power-play opportunities. … The Islanders are 11-5-1 against the Jets since the franchise moved to Winnipeg from Atlanta in 2011.
