Uniondale, NY — Nassau Coliseum — MSG+
Update: Casey Cizikas is in for Eric Boulton
The Islanders will host the Lightning today for a Monday matinee. It’s kid’s day at the Coliseum, so don’t be frightened when you see lots of people dressed in superhero costumes walking around the concourse.
It was announced this morning that Jack Capuano will be behind the bench today. The coach underwent emergency surgery for kidney stones on Saturday. The matchup in goal will be Evegeni Nabokov for the Isles and Anders Lindback for the Lightning. The Lightning acquired Lindback last June to try and solidify their goaltending, which was pretty bad last year between Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson. Lindback allowed three goals and made 27 saves in Tampa’s 6-3 win against Washington on Saturday.
