NEW YORK — The season is just two games old Conor Timmins Jersey Womens , but it has already been a transitional one for the New York Islanders and their new head coach, Barry Trotz. The adaptation process will continue Monday afternoon, when Robin Lehner makes his first start for the Islanders in a Columbus Day matinee against the San Jose Sharks at Barclays Center.It will be the third game of the season for both teams. The Islanders dropped their home opener Saturday, when they fell to the Nashville Predators, 4-3. Article continues below ...The Sharks last played Friday, when they earned a 3-2 overtime win over the host Los Angeles Kings.The narrow defeat for the Islanders on Saturday left Trotz — who coached the Washington Capitals to the team’s first Stanley Cup last spring — in the unfamiliar position of trying to find positives in a loss. New York, which allowed the most goals in the NHL last season (296) and lost star John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in July, followed up a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday by keeping the Western Conference powerhouse Predators off the scoreboard in the third period.“I thought we had some pretty good stretches,” Trotz told reporters afterward. “Our overall game, I thought we were pretty good. I thought we handled their speed well. I thought we managed the puck a lot better than we did in Carolina.”The Sharks also felt good about themselves following the adjustments they made against the Kings http://www.ducksshoponline.com/authentic-jakob-silfverberg-jersey , whom they limited to one goal over the final two periods and overtime while getting their first win when New York native Kevin Labanc scored 2:54 into the extra period.“I thought the third period we really pressed, and I thought we were the better team in the third,” said Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer, whose squad outshot the Kings 12-5 in the third period and overtime. “The guys played as if we needed to win this game and we found a way to do it.”Trotz said following practice Sunday that Lehner, who signed with the Islanders in July following three seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, would draw the start Monday. It will be the first regular season game for Lehner since he entered alcohol rehab and began receiving treatment for bipolar disorder last spring.“I feel I’m ready to play,” Lehner told reporters Sunday. “There are still a few things we’re working on. We’re changing a few things I’ve been doing my whole life. That’s not an overnight thing.”Lehner is 0-4-0 in four career appearances against the Sharks.Martin Jones is likely to draw his third straight start for the Sharks. Jones is 1-0-0 in two career games against the Islanders.The Sharks will be without veteran center Joe Thornton, who was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury Sunday. To replace Thornton on the active roster, San Jose recalled center Dylan Gambrell from its AHL affiliate.The Islanders will be hosting a Western Conference foe on Columbus Day afternoon for the third time in four seasons since moving to Barclays Center. New York suffered a 3-2 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues last season and beat the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2 Womens John Gibson Jersey , in 2015. ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Blues have three players poised to make their season debuts against the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday night, but the biggest question surrounding the team this week is the uncertainty in goal.Starting goalie Jake Allen left Saturday’s 7-3 win over the Chicago Blackhawks late in the second period after a collision with teammate Zach Sanford.Goalie Ville Husso was recalled from the team’s AHL affiliate in San Antonio and skated with backup Chad Johnson in practice Monday and Tuesday, but Husso was sent back to the Rampage after Allen skated Tuesday and Wednesday.Article continues below ...Allen, who went through concussion protocol, said he’s ready to go against the Golden Knights if head coach Mike Yeo decides to put him in the lineup.“It was a hard play to the net. I just made a save and it was a tough blow to the side of the head,” Allen told NHL.com. “I was really (shaken) up at the time. It was the right decision to take me out. It took a little bit of time to gather myself. But after that, I was OK.”Forwards Robby Fabbri, Nikita Soshnikov and defenseman Carl Gunnarsson could all make their season debuts against Vegas.Fabbri, who just completed a three-game conditioning assignment in San Antonio, has not played in a regular-season game since tearing the ACL in his left knee against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Feb. 4 Authentic Josh Manson Jersey , 2017.“I think what we have to find out here is how close is he to 100 percent,” Yeo told NHL.com. “His hundred percent for me is pretty high. That’s a pretty high level. That’s going back to a level that I saw him play at two years ago.”Gunnarsson is also returning from an ACL tear and hip surgery. He is coming off a two-game stint with San Antonio.“That was the last kind of speed, get to game speed and all that, so a good test, and two pretty good games,” Gunnarsson told NHL.com. “That was the last test, it held up well, I feel good, so green light. Now it’s just up to the coaches.”The Blues went 1-0-2 against the Golden Knights last season.Vegas is coming off of a 4-1 loss at Nashville on Tuesday. Forward Ryan Hartman scored twice for the Predators as the Golden Knight allowed four straight goals.“For me, we played the perfect road period against a real good team in the first (period) http://www.ducksshoponline.com/authentic-ondrej-kase-jersey ,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “And then after that, we made some real bad mistakes and it cost us goals every time.”Forward Reilly Smith scored a power play goal in the first period for the Golden Knights, but after putting 13 shots on net in the first, Vegas was held to 11 shots in the final two periods.“We made a couple mistakes maybe over-forechecking and not covering for each other as well as we should, and they did a good job capitalizing on odd-man rushes,” Smith told the Review-Journal. “I think it was a game tailored to them where they just threw a lot of pucks to the neutral zone and waited for bounces. They were able to capitalize on them.”
