Capuano Shakes Up Lines, Islanders Take on Capitals
After playing the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night in a game in which the Islanders couldn't seem to find the back of the net, the Islanders look to rebound tonight against the second place Washington Capitals.
Coach Jack Capuano hinted after Thursday night's game that he was going to shake up the lines. The lines are as follows:
Moulson - Tavares - Grabner
Rolston - Nielsen - Parenteau
Comeau - Reasoner - Okposo
Pandolfo - Bailey - Martin
A move that definitely needed to be done looking back on the Islanders past few games.
Capuano also announced that Rick DiPietro will be starting his third straight game tonight. In the past two, he is 0-1-1, and has given up a goal on the first shot he has seen in those two games. Starting DiPietro makes Islanders fans scratch their heads and think "Where is Al Montoya?" Which is a pretty good question, but Jack Capuano has not been making the worst of decisions when it comes to goaltending, especially since goaltending in the least of the Islanders problems.
