Morning Skate Updates - Islanders at Blue Jackets 11\/09\/13
The Islanders kick off the back side of their four-game road trip tonight in Columbus. Here are some notes and pictures from today's morning skate leading up to tonight's game against the division-rival Blue Jackets. 

200th: Defenseman Travis Hamonic is expected to play his 200th game tonight. The 23-year-old has 11 goals and 55 assists in 199 games as an Islander. 

Between the Pipes: Evgeni Nabokov will start tonight in goal for the Islanders. The Russian goaltender made 27 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to Columbus on Oct. 5. 

Added Grit: Matt Carkner and Eric Boulton draw in for the Islanders tonight in Columbus. Carkner is in for Radek Martinek, while Boulton is in for Brock Nelson. Boulton is expected to play on a line with Matt Martin and Casey Cizikas.

Ness-essary: Aaron Ness will dress again for the Isles tonight. Ness had two hits and two blocked shots in his season debut Thursday and is expected to be paired again with Thomas Hickey. 

Back-to-Back: The Isles kick off a set of back-to-back games tonight in Columbus and head to Montreal for a date with the Canadiens tomorrow. 

From the Coach: "It's funny how it goes. There's game you should win that you don't and vice versa. You just have to stick with it, that's the key; stay on the path and play to your identity."
