Bet Tonight's Hurricanes vs. Islanders Game

The Islanders have really struggled since Jaroslav Halak suffered a groin injury. He'll miss at least three more weeks, which is troubling news for a New York team that is just 3-5-2 during Halak's absence. Thomas Greiss has struggled of late and is expected to start in net for the Islanders tonight. He allowed six goals on 41 shots in Friday's 7-4 loss to the Lightning.

Cam Ward will start for the Hurricanes after stopping 23 of 25 shots in the Hurricanes' 3-2 win over the Devils on Sunday. The 32-year-old put an end to his three-game losing streak and is now 21-16-9 on the year with a 2.43 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage this season.
