The New York Islanders are welcoming a new face to the lineup for Game 6 in Brock Nelson, but not at the expense of Frans Nielsen.
The two-way forward seemed to suffer a lower-body injury in Game 5 on Thursday, yet he’s in the lineup for Saturday’s must-win game nonetheless.
Nielsen has two assists in five postseason games after collecting 29 points in 48 contests during the 2013 regular season.
