– Return of Halak

The Islanders had some awful injury news not too long ago, as goalie Jaroslav Halak suffered a lower-body injury that caused him to miss one game already. The good news for the Islanders is that despite being listed as day-to-day, Halak is expected to be back against the Devils on Saturday.

Halak was able to make it through a full practice on Thursday, and with the season winding down, the Islanders will be placing him back in net. This season has been a great one for Halak, as he has a 34-15-1, with a 2.46 GAA.

Michael Neuvirth hasn’t played very well for the Islanders since the trade, so it’s good that the Islanders will have their All-Star in net.

The Islanders will also be getting Nick Leddy back in the lineup after missing the last few games, as the Islanders are finally starting to get healthy.

Next: Sweep coming?
