Home Finale: The Islanders play their final home game of the season tonight. The Islanders are 2-0-2 in their last four home finales.

Martin: It wasn’t the season we thought we were going to have, but the fans have pretty well been here all year. Even down the stretch, we’ve had some pretty good crowds at home. With all the injuries and guys out of the lineup, the fans show us how much they care and how much they support us. We’re thankful to still have them watching us.

Gallant Recalled: Brett Gallant earned his first NHL call up on Monday. Gallant, 25, leads the Sound Tigers with 245 penalty minutes, the fourth highest total in the AHL. The Summerside, PEI, native also has two points (one goal, one assist) in 56 games this season.

Gallant: I keep it simple, I play tough. I stick up for my teammates. I have to get the puck in and out at both blue lines and play hard.

Rookies: The Islanders are dressing 10 rookies for tonight’s game: Kevin Czuczman, Matt Donovan, Brett Gallant, Mike Halmo, Anders Lee, Scott Mayfield, Brock Nelson, Anders Nilsson, John Persson and Ryan Strome.
