    NEW YORK ISLANDERS (2-2-0) AT ANAHEIM DUCKS (4-1-1)
    10 PM ET | HONDA CENTER
    TV: MSG+ | MSG GO | NHL.TV
    RADIO: 88.7FM | WRHU 103.9FM | LI News RADIO.COM


    Bust out the coffee, smelling salts or whatever else you need to stay up late, as the New York Islanders take on the Anaheim Ducks at 10 p.m. et on Wednesday night.
    Wednesday's contest kicks of a SoCal back-to-back for the Islanders, who take on the LA Kings on Thursday night at STAPLES Center. It's the second of a four-game Western swing, but the first of three games in California. The Islanders are 0-1-0 to start the trip after falling 5-2 in Nashville.
    "You usually play three in four, they're good teams and one of the teams, LA or Anaheim, gets you on a back-to-back and then you go to San Jose" Head Coach Barry Trotz said. "We have to be on our game and a little sharper and execute a little better."


    ISLANDERS NOTES:

    ISLANDERS PLAYER TO WATCH: ANDREW LADD

    Andrew Ladd made an impact in his return to the lineup, netting his first goal of the season off a feed from Mathew Barzal in the second period. Ladd was bumped up to Barzal's line midway through Saturday's game and practiced with Barzal and Josh Bailey on Tuesday. Head Coach Barry Trotz said he expects to see some production out of Ladd in that role, while praising his tough, veteran experience. Ladd also saw some time on the PK during his season debut.

    DUCKS NOTES:

    • The Ducks currently lead the Pacific Division with nine points.
    • Ryan Getzlaf has missed four straight games with a reported groin injury. The Ducks' captain skated on Tuesday morning on a line with Rickard Rakell and Troy Terry.
    • Ducks leading scorer Jakob Silfverberg (upper body) did not skate at Tuesday's practice. Silfverberg leads the Ducks in goals (3) and points (7). Carter Rowney (upper body) also did not skate on Tuesday.
    • The Ducks recalled centers Joseph Blandisi and Chase De Leo from the San Diego Gulls.
    • Corey Perry is expected to miss the first five months of the season after undergoing knee surgery in September.
    DUCKS PLAYER TO WATCH: MAX COMTOIS

    Max Comtois' NHL career is off to a fast start as the 19-year-old has five points (2G, 3A) in his first six NHL games. Comtois, the Ducks 2017 second-round pick (50th overall), is third on the team in scoring trailing only Jakob Silfverberg and Hampus Lindholm. Comtois played his junior hockey for Victoriaville in the QMJHL, scoring 85 points (44G, 41A) in 54 games last season.




    Probable Starting Goalies:

    Thomas Greiss

    [​IMG]

    1-1-0 W-L | 2.52 GAA | 0.928 SV% | 0 SO

    Greiss will start Wednesday in Anaheim.
    Greiss allowed four goals on 25 shots in the Islanders loss to the Predators on October 6th. Greiss has been brilliant and brutal in each of his first two starts of the season. He draws a solid road matchup against a banged up Ducks team that has struggled to score goals (2.67 GF/per game) so far this season.

    Looks like Pelech and Martin getting scratched according to update lines via Staple and Gross.

    I'm thankful that the staff has recognized Pelech's shortcomings. However, unfortunately for us, Sbisa is worse.

    No rush for me on Toews, could use big minutes and PP time at the Bridge.

    They’re probably trying to semi tank. I’m almost sure that Lou is trying to do that which is why I don’t think we see Bellows Toews or Ho Sang til February unless there are a ton of injuries

    Look on the bright side. Can't dip under 500 if we don't play.

    I feel like Carolina has played at least two times the amount of games as the Islanders.

    Since I have Center Ice I can see who’s playing every night.

    Oddly enough it seems they always do a back to back on this California trip and that they always lose the first game and win the 2nd

    West coast trips and alarms set for 5am are terrible combinations.

    He can bark at them all he wants, ineptitude is engrained in the culture. There need to be changes to the roster to see this team be taken seriously.

    Yes and no. You have to start somewhere. Pulock needs this and isn’t a lost cause.

    Great decision if Pelech is scratched. He does not deserve to play and is our worst defenseman currently on the roster.
