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.

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.
Jan 19 - 2:04 PM

Ross Johnston has been summoned by the New York Islanders.

Johnston has 11 points and 113 penalty minutes in 37 AHL games this season. The 23-year-old forward might be a decent source of PIM if he does get regular minutes with the Islanders, but we wouldn't count on that happening.
Jan 19 - 12:32 PM

Casey Cizikas (upper body) has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The move is presumably retroactive to Jan. 13, so all this move really tells us is that Cizikas won't be returning on Saturday. Beyond that, he could still theoretically be returning at any time, but we don't have a timetable for that return. He has five goals and 11 points in 40 games this season.
Jan 19 - 12:31 PM

Mathew Barzal registered an assist in the Islanders' 5-2 loss to Boston on Thursday.

Barzal has recorded at least a point in four of his last five contests. He has 16 goals and 48 points in 47 games this season. He has an eight-point edge in the rookie scoring race.
Jan 19 - 9:35 AM

Jordan Eberle found the back of the net in a 5-2 loss to Boston Thursday night.

Eberle has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last five games. He's up to 15 goals and 37 points in 47 contests this season. He might reach the 60-point milestone for the first time since 2014-15.
Jan 19 - 9:33 AM

Shane Prince (upper body) was able to play on Thursday.

Prince left Tuesday's game due to the injury, but he didn't end up missing a full contest. He had a shot on goal in 12:41 minutes of ice time Thursday night.
Jan 19 - 2:38 AM

Jaroslav Halak stopped 29 of the 33 shots he faced on Thursday night as the New York Islanders dropped their decision versus the Boston Bruins by a score of 5-2.

Another tough night for Halak, who seemed off against the conference-rival Bruins. He has now lost seven of his last 10 games and seems to be struggling to play with any real consistency. With the loss, his record drops to 13-14-2 to go along with a 3.25 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage.
Jan 18 - 9:54 PM

John Tavares scored a goal on Thursday night but it wasn't enough as the New York Islanders fell 5-2 to the Boston Bruins.

The goal was Tavares' 25th of the season and he now sits at 55 points in 47 games. He has five points in his last five games. Tavares' goal was assisted by Josh Bailey and came late in the third period when the game was already out of reach.
Jan 18 - 9:46 PM

The New York Islanders will scratch Alan Quine tonight against the Boston Bruins.

Quine has just two assists in 16 games so far this season and is considered as being just a depth forward. He will be joined in the press box by Dennis Seidenberg.
Jan 18 - 6:39 PM

Nikolay Kulemin (shoulder) is "still a long way away" from returning, per Islanders coach Doug Weight.

Weight did add that Kulemin is also working aggressively to get back. He wasn't expected to return this season after undergoing shoulder surgery in November and it still seems very unlikely.
Jan 18 - 1:25 PM

Josh Bailey (lower body) will return to the Islanders' lineup on Thursday.

Bailey missed four straight contests. He's been outstanding this season with 12 goals and 50 points in 42 games. Be sure to put him back into your lineup if you have him.
