  • Lightning Strike’s Damian Christodero recently wrote “Niittymaki will keep playing until the coaching staff thinks his game takes a dip. Then it’s on to Smith and we see what he can do with his chance.” Going by that statement, Antero Niittymaki will start considering he remains in the league leaders in GAA.

  • Rask confirmed here.
  • Martin Biron starts according to the rotation of Islander’s coach Scott Gordon.
