John Tavares is expected to have his streak of 246 consecutive games played ended Saturday night because of a lower-body injury.

The Islanders haven't said much about the ailment, but coach Jack Capuano said it's something that has been lingering and not something Tavares picked up in Monday's win over Detroit. "I'm concerned, obviously," Capuano said Saturday morning. "You know what Johnny is to our hockey club. He's not only our leader, but obviously his play speaks for itself. But at this particular time, he's not ready to go. We're not going to put him in a situation where he can further hurt himself. You just be cautious with it, and hopefully he'll feel better tomorrow." Tavares has 39 points in 38 games this year and his presence in the lineup will obviously be greatly missed.
