As expected, Robin Lehner is likely the Islanders' starting goalie for Game 1 of their first-round series against the Penguins Wednesday night at the Coliseum. Per reports, Thomas Greiss was the only goalie participating in the Isles' optional morning skate, an indication that Lehner will start.
Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin didn't partake in Pittsburgh's optional skate. He's considered a game-time decision along with Zach Aston-Reese, meaning Pittsburgh's lineup is subject to change.
However, based on practice reports from Tuesday, here are the projected lineups for Game 1.
Anders Lee-Mat Barzal-Jordan Eberle
Josh Bailey-Brock Nelson-Tom Kuhnhackl
Anthony Beauvillier-Valtteri Filppula-Leo Komarov
Matt Martin-Casey Cizikas-Cal Clutterbuck
Nick Leddy-Johnny Boychuk
Adam Pelech-Ryan Pulock
Devon Toews-Scott Mayfield
Jake Guentzel-Sidney Crosby-Bryan Rust
Jared McCann-Evgeni Malkin-Patric Hornqvist
Dominik Simon-Nick Bjugstad-Phil Kessel
Teddy Blueger-Matt Cullen-Garrett Wilson
Olli Maatta-Kris Letang
Jack Johnson-Justin Schultz
Marcus Pettersson-Erik Gudbranson
