Dwayne Roloson gets the start tonight against the Rangers.

And Scott Gordon did make a change on defense.

Andrew MacDonald is in tonight and Bruno Gervais will watch from the press box.

MacDonald, initially a Bridgeport call-up, has more than ably filled in while the Islanders suffered injuries to their blue line and now is earning the opportunity to play over some mainstays.

"It's really encouraging," MacDonald said. "It's just another opportunity to take advantage of."

Same forward lines as the other night, so Jeff Tambellini will join Gervais in the press box.
