Jaroslav Halak will start in goal for the Islanders when they play the Bruins at home tonight at 7 p.m., head coach Doug Weight said.
The recently recalled Tanner Fritz will also be in the lineup for the Isles. This season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, he has notched 10 goals and 25 assists in 29 games. His 35 points is ranked fifth in the AHL.
Alan Quine will be out of Weight's lineup on Tuesday, while the defensive lines will remain the same.
The Islanders are 4-5-1 in their last ten games, and looking to start the new year off right. Three out of their four games this week will be at home.
