    NEW YORK ISLANDERS (1-0-0) VS NASHVILLE PREDATORS (1-0-0)
    7 PM | BARCLAYS CENTER
    TV: MSG+ MSG GO
    RADIO: 88.7FM - WRHU | 103.9FM - WRCN | RADIO.COM



    HOME OPENER:

    The New York Islanders are playing their home opener on Saturday night at Barclays Center.
    It's the Islanders fourth home opener in Brooklyn and fans are encouraged to come at 4 p.m. for a pre-game celebration. Islanders legends Billy Smith, Bryan Trottier and Bobby Nystrom will be present and signing autographs on at Barclays Center's Resorts World Casino NYC Plaza. The event will also feature live music and all fans will receive a magnetic schedule.
    The Isles are 27-12-6 all-time in home openers (2-0-1 at Barclays Center) and have gone 3-0-2 in their last 5 home openers. It will be the first time that the Isles have faced Nashville in a home opener.




    TAKING ON THE PREDATORS:

    The Islanders and Predators will meet twice in a week, starting Saturday night in Brooklyn and again on Oct. 13 in Nashville. These are the lone two meetings between the clubs this season.
    The Isles went 1-0-1 against the Preds last season, with the road team winning both games. Overall, the Isles have points in their last three games against Nashville (2-0-1).




    ISLANDERS NOTES:

    -- Thomas Greiss will start in goal while the Islanders will ice the same lineup from Thursday's win in Carolina. See projected lines and get all the latest from our morning skate updates.
    -- The Islanders are looking for their second straight win after beating the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in OT on Thursday night. Thomas Greiss made 45 saves in the win, while Josh Bailey scored the OT winner.
    -- Head Coach Barry Trotz is looking for improvement out of the Islanders in their second game of the season. The Isles were outshot 46-20 in their season opener and the coach wants to see better puck management and decision-making out of his club.
    -- Brock Nelson is one goal shy of his 100th career NHL goal.




    PREDATORS NOTES:

    -- Juuse Saros is the expected starter for Nashville, according to The Athletic's Adam Vingan. For projected lines and the latest news, see our morning skate updates.
    -- The Predators are 1-0-0 after beating the New York Rangers in their season opener on Thursday. Filip Forsberg, PK Subban and Colton Sissons scored for Nashville while Pekka Rinne made 34 saves.
    -- The Predators are the reigning Presidents' Trophy winners as the NHL's top regular season team. Nashville finished the 2017-18 season with 117 points, but were eliminated by Winnipeg in the second round of the playoffs.
    -- Nashville's defensive depth is one of their strengths, as their top four boasts captain Roman Josi, PK Subban, Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm. Subban (59 points) and Josi (53) each eclipsed 50 points last season.





    ISLANDERS PLAYER TO WATCH: JOSH BAILEY:

    Josh Bailey scored the overtime winner on Thursday night, ripping a one-timer on a 4-on-3 power play. Bailey is one of the focal points of the Isles offense this season, settling into a role as a triggerman off the half wall on the top power-play unit while also playing on a line with Mathew Barzal. Bailey was named an alternate captain on Thursday.



    PREDATORS PLAYER TO WATCH: P.K. SUBBAN:

    P.K. Subban led all Predators defense with 59 points last season and is one of the top offensive defensemen in the NHL. Subban was a finalist for the Norris Trophy last season and is always a threat to score or throw a big hit when he's on the ice. An electric player, Subban is one fourth of a dangerous top-four d corps in Nashville.

    What does rating correspond to? Is that EA rating or something?

    This game will be our second win. I predicted 10 in a row. So far, I am 10% right.

    I hope they play alot tighter defensively tomorrow (mainly keeping shots under 30). Yesterdays effort will get them absolutely obliterated vs Nashville.

    Let’s go!!

    Do we go to Lehner or ride Greiss off of his big performance?

    Big test early in the season against one of the best teams in the league. We’ll get a chance to see what we’re made of.

    Should be a tough game to win, we’re going up against one hell of a team. Let’s see how our boys do

    If you show up around 4pm Billy Smith, Trottier and Mr Islander Bobby Nystrom will be signing autographs at the plaza outside Barclays.

    I'll be there with my Tavares jersey. Masking tape over the name. Can't decide if I should write Goring, Pajamas, or Traitor.

    Totally unimportant sidenote about opening night: I hope now that traitor is gone, the team resumes player intros at the home opener. I always remember it was his idea to stop doing that because "they were a team, not individuals," uh huh. The player intros are for the fans and make opening night different than any other game.

    I think we win this won 3-2 in OT again, give up 43 shots, and Pulock blasts an OT goal, his 2nd of the game.

    I would say turnovers was a huge issue but the defensive play itself wasn't that bad

    On a side note I predict Pulock will score. For whatever reason I think he has like 4 points(Including 3 goals) in 3 games lifetime against nashville. lol

    Another quick team that thrives on neutral zone turnovers and transition. Should give NYI fits; must be cleaner in the D and neutral zones. The Preds can finish chances.

    Go w Greiss.

    Hoping we can stop handling the puck in our own end like it was a live grenade. Smarter decisions please.

    Lehner will get his chance eventually. You can't bench Greiss after his last game though.
