    ISLANDERS NOTES:


    -- Robin Lehner will make his season debut on Monday. The Swedish goalie signed a one-year deal with the Isles over the summer. Lehner sat in favor of Thomas Greiss in the first two games.
    "I feel ready to play," Lehner said. "There are some things we're still working on, but it'll come in time. We're changing a few things that I've been doing my whole life. It's not an overnight thing. I feel ready. It's going to be fun."
    -- After keeping the lineup intact for two straight games, the Islanders experimented with different d-combinations on Sunday. Nick Leddy and Johnny Boychuk were reunited on the back end, while Scott Mayfield skated with Thomas Hickey, meaning that Mayfield is likely to make his season debut. Luca Sbisa is expected to be out.

    -- The Islanders also made a change up front on Sunday, as Tom Kuhnhackl skated in Tanner Fritz's place on the Valtteri Filppula line. Kuhnhackl will be making his Islanders debut if he plays.

    -- Filppula has goals in two straight games and leads the Islanders with two this season.

    -- The Islanders penalty kill is 4-for-4 to start the season, while the power play has scored in two straight games.

    -- Brock Nelson (99 goals) is one shy of 100.


    PROJECTED LINES:
    Anders Lee - Brock Nelson - Jordan Eberle
    Anthony Beauvillier - Mathew Barzal - Josh Bailey
    Matt Martin - Casey Cizikas - Cal Clutterbuck
    Leo Komarov - Valtteri Fillpula - Tom Kuhnhackl


    D-PAIRS:
    Adam Pelech - Ryan Pulock
    Nick Leddy - Johnny Boychuk
    Thomas Hickey - Scott Mayfield

    SHARKS NOTES:
    -- Joe Thornton was placed on IR on Sunday after experiencing swelling in his right knee. He will miss Monday's contest. Dylan Gambrell was recalled from the AHL.
    -- Evander Kane leads the Sharks with two goals and is riding a two-game scoring streak.
    -- The Sharks are coming in off a 3-2 overtime win over the LA Kings on Saturday night. Staten Island native Kevin Labanc scored the OT winner.


    ISLANDERS PLAYER TO WATCH: ROBIN LEHNER
    Robin Lehner is expected to make his Islanders regular season debut on Monday. The 6'4, 240 lbs. goalie went 3-1-0 in the preseason. Lehner's NHL career totals feature a 2.82 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in 219 games with Buffalo and the Ottawa Senators.

    SHARKS PLAYER TO WATCH: ERIK KARLSSON
    San Jose sent shockwaves through the NHL when they acquired Erik Karlsson from the Ottawa Senators in September. Karlsson is a two-time Norris winner and joins an already stacked blue line in San Jose that includes Norris winner Brent Burns and Marc-Edouard Vlasic.
    Burns (218 points) and Karlsson (216) are the two highest-scoring defensemen in the NHL since 2015-16. Karlsson has started the season on a pairing with Vlasic, though he and Burns both man the point on the top power-play unit. Barry Trotz said his team will need to be cognizant of when Karlsson's on the ice Monday, as he acts like an extra forward.

    Hate how this is at 1pm.

    This team needs Bellows and Wahlstrom in the worst way. Filppula is out top goal scorer followed by Bailey and Barzal. Lee’s got one, but he can’t do it alone.

    1pm games suck especially when you are at work. Looks like I'll be streaming this from my phone.

    Two questions:

    1)what's the deal with the ratings? What do they mean and how are they calculated?
    2)I think Joe Thornton is on IR. Is that true? Hopefully they can take advantage of that today.

    I wonder if wingers can elevate a centre? I also wonder if we are doing this to give him a legitimate shot at improving his skills or just to show to other teams that he's awesome and they should trade multiple 1sts for him?

    I just meant that they’re really no shoot first ask questions later snipers on the team.

    Nelson typically struggles with getting his shot off in time, and Beauvillier and Eberle rely on getting open in soft spots to get their shots off.

    Isles 1-1 after a poorly played game out goalie bailed us out in and a well-played game against a cup contender in which our goalie lost us the game. Playing another contender today.

    Looks like Lehner in for Greiss, Mayfield in for Sbisa, and possibly Kuhnackl in for Fritz. Don't understand the last one as you have 2 top tier W prospects who are NHL ready in AHL. Oh well. Toews and Bellows/JHS will be here before long.

    Think this will be a high scoring affair. If I had to guess I think the Sharks will take it 6-4 getting an empty netter late.

    Came into the office at 7 this morning... taking a half day and heading to Barclays around noon. Looking forward to this one and I expect a close, hard checking game. 3-2 Islanders.

    I’m really looking forward to this one and seeing Karlsson for the first time in a sharks uniform. I’m from Ott (my gf goes to school in SVA so I’m visiting) and got tickets as soon as I realized it was an early game.

    Best of luck guys, and great effort put into the OP!

    Thornton is on IR, yes. He had swelling in his surgically repaired knee I believe.



    Going to try and avoid the boards and my phone until I get home from work. Someone spoiled the Giants game for me yesterday, not interested in having it happen again today with the Isles.

    Afternoon games have long been a letdown for this team. One of the many things the new regime will have to change. Hoping to see Lehrer come up large and see a team with life and energy..

    LGI !!
