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.

Tonight, the New York Islanders host the St. Louis Blues in the second and final matchup between the two clubs this season.
These teams last met just over one month ago, on November 3, when Noah Dobson, Anders Lee, and Brock Nelson each recorded multi-point games in a 5-2 win in St. Louis.
The Islanders last hosted the Blues on March 5 of last season, a 2-1 Islander victory. The Islanders face their third straight Central Division opponent tonight. They look to improve upon their 8-4-0 record against Western Conference teams this season, and earn their tenth home-ice victory of 2022-23.
