Defenceman Jaroslav Spacek was one of three players to skate at Nassau Coliseum this morning but he won’t be in the lineup tonight against the New York Islanders.
“I’ve been out for four days and i want to have at least one good practice,” said Spacek, who has missed the previous two games with the flu. “If I had to play, I probably could but the team is playing well.”
Ben Maxwell will join Spacek as a healthy scratch. Jaroslav Halak will start in goal.
