With Ilya Sorokin not starting for New York and Semyon Varlamov in, we'll roll with Ottawa at home. Varlamov has appeared in just two of the Islanders' last 17 games, losing both and allowing eight goals on 45 shots (.822 save percentage). Noah Dobson (27) points is iffy after missing Monday's game. Sens blueliner Nikita Zaitsev, who last played Dec. 27, will be in the lineup. Center Tyler Motte, out since Dec. 22, might play. New York has lost its past four road games.
