Facing Greiss, Gm 27: Islanders vs. Blues, Line Combos, Injury Updates & More



New York Islanders, Thomas Greiss

EAST MEADOW, NY–After a 3-0 shutout win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night, the New York Islanders (16-10-0) are back in action as they host the St. Louis Blues (11-14-0) at UBS Arena. Puck drop is slated for 7:30 PM.

With the St. Louis Blues falling to the New York Rangers 6-4, and Jordan Binnington getting that start, that means former Islanders netminder Thomas Greiss will face his former team. This will be third straight game the Islanders face a team on the second leg of a back-to-back.

The Islanders were on the ice for morning skate, with everyone accounted for besides Kyle Palmieri (IR, upper-body).

Cal Clutterbuck (day-to-day), who had missed the last two games after leaving in the first period of their game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Nov. 29, was on the ice before morning skate and during, but did not take part in line rushes.

He will not play, per New York Islanders head coach Lane Lambert, as he will miss his third straight game.

Palmieri is skating on his own, but will miss his seventh straight game.

Ilya Sorokin was the first goaltender off the ice at morning skate, as he will likely make his 18th start of the season.

The St. Louis Blues did not skate.
