Islanders forwards Colin McDonald and Eric Boulton and defenseman Matt Donovan will all be healthy scratches Wednesday in Washington.

This trio does not carry any fantasy value for those of you in daily leagues. McDonald has played in just one game since March 7th and was able to score two goals and six assists in 18 games this season. Boulton had been seeing regular ice time during the last few games of the season but with physicality less of a need in the playoffs, he will be back in the press box for Game 1. And Donovan hasn’t played since March 21st and had picked up three assists in 12 games in the 2014-2015 season.

Colin McDonald, Matt Donovan, and Eric Boulton will be scratched on Friday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Donovan has played just nine games, and none since the first week of January. And Boulton has just five games under his belt despite nearly 1400 career PIMs.
