Last two split-squad pre-season games

 UPDATE: Matt Martin (foot) and Rob Schremp (back) are both out for tonight's game.

After dropping their first three pre-season games (including two split-squad contests Wednesday) the Islanders will play their last pair of exhibition games tonight. One group will head to Quebec to play Montreal after this morning's skate, the other will take on the Devils in a rematch at the Coliseum.

Ex-Devil and recent acquisition Mike Mottau will make his Islanders debut tonight against his former team. Rick DiPietro will also start in net vs. NJ but will not participate in the pre-game skate.

***Matt Martin, who suffered a bone bruise on his left foot after blocking a shot Wednesday in Saskatoon, is on the ice right now to test it out. He's out there early with Robin Figren, Tony Romano, Nathan Lawson and Kevin Poulin.

Below are the lineups for each group.
