Losers in four of their last five games, the Islanders look to grab the last two points before heading into the All-Star Break.
Kevin Poulin delivered 30 saves last night although the Islanders were shut out by Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pens in Pittsburgh last night; assume that means Rick DiPietro starts in goal tonight.
DiPietro is 5-11-1 in 18 career games against Carolina.
Hurricanes rookie Jeff Skinner has 14 points (9 goals, 5 assists) in 13 games this January. Skinner is currently leading rookies in scoring.
No skate this morning for the Islanders. Hearing that Long Island is bracing for another significant snowstorm.....
