The Vancouver Canucks look to snap their two-game winless streak when they make a rare visit to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum to take on the struggling New York Islanders.
After a promising start to their seven-game road trip that began with back-to-back wins in Philadelphia and Buffalo, the Canucks have come back down to earth in their last couple of games dropping consecutive outings in Pittsburgh and, most recently, in Columbus on Sunday. The Islanders might be the perfect tonic for a Canucks team looking to snap their winless skid as they have just one win in their last five outings although the Blue Jackets were a slumping bunch as well before they knocked off Vancouver 3-1.
The Islanders have been off since suffering a 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Hurricanes on Saturday – a loss that snapped their 10-game point streak on home ice which dated back to last season. Roberto Luongo will return to the crease tonight for Vancouver after getting Sunday off while Evgeni Nabokov figures to get the call for Long Island. The Islanders will be without offensive defenceman Lubomir Visnovksy and ex-Canuck Michael Grabner tonight. Visnovsky was put on injured reserve with a concussion while Grabner was handed a two-game suspension for his high hit on Carolina's Nathan Gerbe on Saturday.
Puck drop at 4 pm PT - Live on Sportsnet Pacific, The TEAM 1040, or online at teamradio.ca.
