Isles roll with same lineup tonight vs. Ducks

Evgeni Nabokov goes for win No. 299 and the same 18 skaters will play tonight in Anaheim. That leaves Jay Pandolfo and emergency recall Dylan Reese as healthy scratches.

"No need to change anything," Jack Capuano said.

Back home, none of the Isles injured players -- concussion sufferers David Ullstrom and Mike Mottau and Rick DiPietro, who is still out with an undisclosed injury -- have skated of late.

The Ducks come in with only 10 wins this season, on a three-game losing streak and on the heels of GM Bob Murray's declaration on Wednesday that he's open to trading just about anyone, including captain Ryan Getzlaf and stars Corey Perry and Bobby Ryan.

Former Isle Jason Blake, who missed three months after a deep skate laceration to his arm, is back in the lineup.
