Islanders vs. Lightning

December 5, 2009

The Islanders (11-10-7) are 9-2-5 in games Dwayne Roloson starts.

@St. Pete Time Forum:  Tampa Bay, Florida

New York Islanders (11-10-7, 29 pts)

vs.

Tampa Bay Lightning (10-9-8, 28 pts)

Game time: 7:30 pm

TV:  MSG Plus

 

News and Notes:  Dwayne Roloson likely will make a second consecutive start for the Islanders on Saturday night in-goal when they continue a five-game trip against the slumping Tampa Bay Lightning.   The Isles, which have yet to win consecutive road games this season, won three of four meetings with the Lightning in 2008-09, splitting two contests at St. Pete Times Forum.  Tampa Bay looks to rebound from a disheartening 3-2 loss — its fourth straight — at New Jersey on Friday night.  Mike Smith likely will be in net for the Lightning looking to continue his superb goaltending at home. Smith is 3-0-2 with a 1.94 goals-against average in five home starts this season but has never faced the Islanders.
