The New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators will meet Sunday with split-squad games in Ontario. In Barrie, John Tavares and Matt Moulson will look to pace the Islanders in their final preseason game. John Persson and Johan Sundstrom, a pair of Swedes who played together most of last season in Bridgeport, will likely see ice time together Sunday.

In Ottawa, look for the line of Brock Nelson, Peter Regin, and Pierre-Marc Bouchard to attempt to replicate the performance it had Friday against Nashville. Though none of the three scored, they consistently formed the strongest line on the ice for the Islanders and could prove to be a force when the regular season rolls around.
