Battle of the Coach Changers: Islanders @ Canadiens 2/23/17

The Islanders are in Montreal to finish off their season series with Canadiens and for game two of their longest road trip in franchise history (Bell Centre, 7:30 PM ET).

Behind the Bench:

The Islanders fired their head coach Jack Capuano on January 17th and replaced him with interim head coach, Doug Weight. Under Weight, the Islanders are now 11-4-2 and are in the playoff race. The Islanders, who were 17-17-8 under Capuano, have went from the bottom of the standings to right around a playoff spot. The Canadiens, who started the season as the league’s best team, have slowed down recently and during their bye-week, they too made a coaching change. Montreal fired head coach Michel Therrien and replaced him with recently fire Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien. In two games with Montreal this season, Julien is 1-1-0 behind the Canadiens’ bench, coming off a 3-2 shootout win at Madison Square Garden against the Rangers.

Feel the Kearn(s):

Tonight is game two of the Islanders’ nine game road trip, the longest road trip in franchise history. They started the road trip off with a 3-1 win in Detroit but the win came at a cost. Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck both left the game with injuries and did not return. Yesterday, the Islanders placed Shane Prince on IR and called up Bracken Kearns from Bridgeport who leads the Sound Tigers in scoring with 18 goals, 22 assists, and 40 points through 51 games. A source has told Newsday’s Arthur Staple that Cizikas is expected to miss four weeks. Whether Clutterbuck will play tonight is unknown.
