Ottawa Senators at New York Islanders 1pm ET
Uniondale, NY — NVMC — MSG+, RSNE

The Islanders host the seventh place senators at the Coliseum in a matinee today and head to Buffalo to play the 14th place Sabres tomorrow. Two games do not make a playoff team, but with only four to go before the deadline they can certainly have a strong hand in determining whether talent will be staying or going (glances in PAP’s direction).

If you’re heading out to the Coliseum today, please beware of giant-headed long-dead Presidents. They may be skating on the ice, high-fiving and trying to eat your children. Maybe not so much on the eating part.

Moulson – Tavares – Parenteau
Grabner – Nielsen – Okposo
Rolston – Bailey – Martin
Niederreiter – Reasoner – Pandolfo

Streit – MacDonald
