Islanders Avalanche Pregame; The Wiz and JT Return | October
logo

After coming away with just one point out of two games for the Islanders' first two road games, they're back at the Coliseum tonight to face off with the Avs. John Tavares will play in just his first full game tonight (assuming nothing happens to him on the ice) after suffering a minor concussion against Dallas last Saturday. Also, recently suspened James Wisniewski will be back after serving two games.

It's still unclear who gets the start, but I'd go with Roloson. DiPietro needs a rest from getting trampled on by PA Parenteau and Matt Cooke, all caused by Cooke. Hopefully he's okay, though. If Rolie starts tonight, he'll make his Coliseum debut this season!

A few keys for the Isles tonight:

- Jump on them early

- Get the puck out of your zone and to the opponent's net

- And finally, don't take bad penalties!

This should be an exciting one tonight at the Coliseum. It will air on MSG Plus 2. Lets get a win out of this, Isles!
