1 Trainer's Room

The Islanders injuries woes continue to get worse. Casey Cizikas (hand) is the latest name to add to the list that already includes Josh Bailey, Andrew Ladd, Johnny Boychuk and Calvin de Haan.

Tanner Fritz was recalled from Bridgeport (AHL) and will likely take Cizikas’ spot on the fourth line.  

2 Rookie Phenom

Brendan Burke and Butch Goring break down how Anthony Beauvillier and Mathew Barzal fueled the Islanders to an enormous win against the Rangers at The Garden.

Mathew Barzal had his second five-point performance of the season in Saturday’s 7-2 rout of the Rangers.

The 20-year-old rookie now has 44 points (15 goals, 29 assists) and regained the lead in rookie points from Vancouver’s Brock Boeser (44-40).


Anthony Beauvillier remembers his homecoming in Montreal during the 2016-17 campaign and how the storybook night unfolded.

Anthony Beauvillier will be playing his 100th career game tonight in his hometown of Montreal fresh off the first multi-goal game of his career.

Last season, Beauvillier scored in his first career game at Bell Centre with his parents in attendance. What does he have in store for an encore?

4 Change In Net

With the Isles starting a back-to-back tonight, Thomas Greiss gets the nod in goal.

Making just his second appearance since December 19, Greiss is 9-6-2 this season but has a 3.89 goals-against average and a .882 save percentage.
