It's Lundqvist and MacDonald

Steve Zipay at Blue Notes reports that Henrik Lundqvist will make his fifth straight start tonight against the Islanders, while the Isles will turn to back-up goaltender Joey MacDonald.

Zipay also reports that Petr Prucha will be back in the line-up for the second straight game meaning Lauri Korpikoski, Dan Fritsche and Pat Rissmiller are healthy scratches.

Tom Renney shot down the idea of Korpikoski possibly being sent down to Hartford.

They're going to put a hurting on this Macdonald character. Can this guy withstand a 40 shot game?

I don't agree with Korpikoski staying with the big club as a healthy scratch. Even if he is sent down for 2-3 games, that's better than watching 2-3 games. And he might even tally a few points and get some confidence, confidence that would probably stay with him if he was brought back up again.
