Islanders @ Lightning Pre-Game Report | March
logo



The Islanders are looking to making it three wins in a row as they take on the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Last time these two teams met was back on December 6 at the Nassau Coliseum. The Islanders came away with a 5-1 win with goals from John Tavares, Matt Moulson, Matt Martin, David Ullstrom and Milan Jurcina. Al Montoya stoped 23 of the 24 shots he faced and put up a .958 save percentage.

Tonight the Islanders will send Montoya back out to defend the net against the lightning. He is making his second start in row since playing on February 20 against the Ottawa Senators.

Milan Jurcina and Jay Pandolfo will be tonight’s scratches for the Isles. Below is tonight’s Islanders lineup:
