ISLANDERS TAKE ON KINGS
Islanders at Los Angeles

(10:30 p.m. ET, TV: FSNY | Radio: Bloomberg 1130)  The opening road trip continues tonight in Los Angeles as the Islanders take on the Kings at the Staples Center.

The Islanders look to bounce back from consecutive losses as they take on a Kings team they last played on February 16, 2004 at the Nassau Coliseum. In that game, Rick DiPietro came away as the First Star of the game, stopping 29 shots in a 1-1 tie. Arron Asham scored the lone Islanders goal and is one of only five remaining Islanders who participated in that game; DiPietro, Shawn Bates, Jason Blake and Trent Hunter were the other four. The Islanders hold the all-time series lead 41-36-12.

Based on the off-day practice, Ted Nolan appears to be going with a similar forward lineup as Saturday's against San Jose with Alexei Yashin centering Viktor Kozlov and Andy Hilbert, Mike Sillinger alongside Trent Hunter and Miroslav Satan, Shawn Bates with Jason Blake and Richard Park, and Mike York on a line with, most likely, Arron Asham and Chris Simon.

Los Angeles dropped its season opener in Anaheim 4-3 on Friday, but won the following night in Los Angeles against St. Louis, 4-1. Their leading scorer in the early going is freshman center Anze Kopitar from Jesenice, Slovenia. His five points after two games places him first among rookies. Lubomir Visnovsky, who was tied for fourth among defensemen in points last year, is leading the Kings defense again in scoring this year, tallying two goals in two games.

The Kings have started both netminders on their roster: Dan Cloutier and Mathieu Garon, but are likely to go with Garon tonight because he earned the win against St. Louis, allowing one goal on 36 shots. Cloutier, meanwhile, allowed four goals on 32 shots, to pick up the loss against Anaheim.
