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.

With these players in action, the most noteworthy Islanders scratches are Jesse Joensuu and Thomas Hickey.

Nielsen has two assists in five postseason games after collecting 29 points in 48 contests during the 2013 regular season.
