Apr 3 - 1:21 PM

Jaroslav Halak is dealing with an illness.

Halak will miss Friday's game as a result. Goaltender Christopher Gibson had originally been up as an emergency recall because Thomas Greiss was injured, but as previously reported, Greiss is healthy now. With Halak sick, Gibson's emergency status was transferred to him, which is why Gibson is available to start in Friday's game.

Jaroslav Halak stopped 33 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.

The Islanders netminder now owns a 19-26-6 record with a 3.24 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage this season. Halak is more of a middle-of-the-pack number two goalie in most standard fantasy leagues.

Halak hasn't recorded a win since Feb. 15 and he will come into tonight's game with a 18-25-6 record, a 3.27 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage. He has a good chance at breaking his long losing streak considering the Blackhawks have lost five-straight games and eight of their last 10.

Jaroslav Halak allowed one goal on 12 shots in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

New York managed to score three times in the third period to cut Tampa's lead to 7-6, but that's as close as they'd come to tying the game. The loss drops Halak's record to 18-25-6 on the season. He'll enter his next appearance with a 3.27 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage.
