2012-13 season series (1-2-0)
The Islanders went 1-2-0 against Ottawa last season, dropping the last contest 5-3 at Nassau Coliseum. Josh Bailey (one goal, one assist) and Kyle Okposo (two assists) each had multi-point efforts as the Islanders took a 3-1 lead to the second intermission. Lubomir Visnovsky scored on the power play and the Islanders outshot the Senators 29-23, but four unanswered Senators goals in the third period sealed the contest. The teams will meet two more times in April.

Quote Of The Day:

Islanders forward Peter Regin

"I expect Ottawa to come out hard. They've lost three in a row and I know from being there, it's not a place where they accept losing. It's going to be special going into a rink where I lived and trained every day for four years. I'm excited to go there and to get the two points would be really special."
