The Islanders get set to take on the Caps without Striet, Okposo, Tavares, and now James Wisniewski. Washington comes into tonight's match up 2-1 and off a 3-2 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators. The previous two games, the caps lost to Atlanta 4-2 and then defeated the Devils in impressive fashion 7-2. Last season the Islanders and Caps faced off in several epic games that had to be decided in overtime. Tonight will mark the first start of the season for goaltender, Dwanyne Roloson.In an interesting twist Jack Hillen will play his first game of the 10-11 season against Ovie and the caps. Last year Ovie fired a shot that hit Jack Hillen in the face which sidelined Hillen for several weeks.
