Jaroslav Halak will tend to the cage on Monday night against Arizona.

Halak is coming off a 7-3 win over Chicago on Saturday where he stopped 36 shots. The Islanders puck stopper has a 14-14-2 record in 2017-18 with a 3.24 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.

Johnny Boychuk (lower body) may not be available to play this week.

It was thought that Boychuk may be available to return on Thursday, but he may need more conditioning time. As a result, he could be on the sidelines until after the All-Star break.

Casey Cizikas (upper body) won't play Monday night.

Cizikas might be back in the fold on Thursday, but it's more likely that he will play after the All-Star break.

Ryan Pulock had a night to remember Saturday against Chicago.

He scored a goal and registered four assists to become the 10th rookie defenseman in the history of the NHL to register five points in a game, and the first to do so with the Islanders. Pretty amazing for a guy who had nine points in 33 games going into Saturday night's contest.

With his goal Saturday night against the Blackhawks, Brock Nelson ended a nasty goalless streak.

Nelson had gone 17 games since scoring his last goal on December 11th. He also added two assists in the 7-3 win over the Blackhawks. Perhaps this game will serve as a jumping off point for Nelson who has had a terrible first half of the season with only 17 points in 48 games.

Ryan Pulock scored a goal and added four assists in a 7-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Prior to Saturday night's game, Pulock didn't register more than two points in a game. Tonight, he had a hand in five of the Islanders' seven goals against Chicago. He assisted on goals from Anthony Beauvillier, Jordan Eberle, and Brock Nelson. He also added a goal of his own in the opening period. Pulock has four goals and 14 points in 34 games this season.

Jaroslav Halak made 36 saves on 39 shots in a 7-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

Halak posted his first win in a week. However, he's still allowed quite a few goals over the span of his last nine at a total of 34. Halak's record, however, improves to 14-14-2 with a 3.24 GAA, and a .906 save percentage.

Dennis Seidenberg will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The veteran has no goals and five assists in 18 games this season. Seidenberg has played in just one of his team's last six contests. Michael Dal Colle will also watch the game from the press box.

The New York Islanders are making a few changes to the lineup tonight that include making rookie Michael Dal Colle a healthy scratch.

Dal Colle has failed to register a single point in his first four NHL games. Both he and Shane Prince will come out of the lineup while Alan Quine and Ross Johnston will make their way in.
Jan 20 - 2:48 PM

The New York Islanders have confirmed that goaltender Jaroslav Halak will be in goal tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Halak has lost two straight starts, allowing four goals in each game. Additionally, he'll come into tonight's game with losses in six of his last eight games. Halak has a 13-14-2 record this season with a 3.25 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
Jan 20 - 2:45 PM

Thomas Greiss is the Islanders' probable starter for Saturday night's contest against the Blackhawks.

Greiss was spectacular in his last start, a 5-4 overtime win over Montreal in which he stopped 52 shots. Jaroslav Halak has lost his last two games allowing eight goals on 75 shots. That sounds like a recipe for a Greiss start to us.
Jan 20 - 11:26 AM

Andrew Ladd (upper body) won't join the Islanders on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Ladd has missed five games so far due to the ailment. While this new development suggests that he will miss at least another week, there's still a chance that he'll meeting up with the Islanders before they finish their trip.
Jan 19 - 2:10 PM

Shane Prince (upper body) is back on the sidelines.

Prince couldn't complete Tuesday's game due to an injury, but he was able to log 12:41 minutes on Thursday. Despite that, he won't be joining the Islanders on their upcoming three-game road trip.
Jan 19 - 2:08 PM

Johnny Boychuk (lower body) will accompany the Islanders on their upcoming three-game road trip.

Boychuk is expected to miss Saturday and Monday's games, but perhaps he'll return on Thursday. He has three goals and nine points in 34 contests this season.
Jan 19 - 2:05 PM

Casey Cizikas (upper body) will join the Islanders on their three-game road trip.

Cizikas, who was put on the injured reserve list, will probably miss Saturday and Monday's contests. There's a chance that he'll be available for Thursday's game in Vegas though.
