New York Islanders at Philadelphia Flyers, 7pm ET
Philadelphia, PA — Wells Fargo Center — MSG+2, CSP

UPDATE, 4PM: Dylan Reese has been activated from IR.

Tonight’s game is on MSG+2 so anticipate all the fun that comes along with that; desperately searching for the channel, hoping the audio doesn’t echo… Anyway. The gate will be open as always. This is confirmed.

Dylan Reese skated with the Islanders this morning, working his way back from and MCL sprain suffered last time the Islanders were in Philadelphia, on February 7th. He wasn’t expected to be on this road trip and he won’t play tonight but he’s on his way back. With Mark Katic being activated and returned to Bridgeport, there are only two players left on the Islanders’ IR list. One is Reese and the other…

With three games in the next four days, we could see Anders Nilsson get a start somewhere. Nabokov has been a workhorse and should continue to be one, but even that would be a lot of work for him.
