      New York Islanders

      Sorokin will start on Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

      The Islanders will return to Sorokin on Tuesday night for his third straight start. Sorokin struggled in his last outing at the Stadium Series against the New York Rangers on Sunday, allowing two goals in the final five minutes en route to an eventual 6-5 overtime loss. Before that, Sorokin was amid one of his best stretches of the season, allowing three or fewer goals in five straight games (3-1-1), boasting an impressive .936 SV%. The Islanders enter action as +117 road underdogs against a struggling Pittsburgh Penguins team.

      Sorokin stopped 29 of 30 shots in the Islanders' 2-1 shootout loss to the Kraken on Tuesday. Sorokin has gone 3-1-1 with a 1.98 GAA and .936 SV% in five starts since the Islanders hired Patrick Roy. The 28-year-old netminder has played well vs. the Rangers throughout his career, going 3-2-0 with a 2.40 GAA, .936 SV% and one shutout in five meetings.

      Ilya Sorokin will start on Tuesday vs. Seattle.

      Semyon Varlamov was in the crease in the Islanders' previous game and fell to 0-2-1 since Patrick Roy took over as coach, contrasting Sorokin's impressive 3-1-0 record in that span. Sorokin has played exceptionally in his last two outings, allowing four total goals and boasting a .929 SV%. The 28-year-old Sorokin will return to the crease on Tuesday in a favourable matchup against a low-scoring Seattle Kraken team (2.73 GF / GP) that was defeated 3-1 by the New Jersey Devils last night.

      Sorokin will start against the Lightning on Thursday.

      Sorokin will return to the crease on Thursday after a solid performance in his last outing. The talented netminder saved 35 of 37 shots (.946 SV%) in a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday, only his second win in his last seven outings. The rested Islanders are -139 home favourites against a Tampa Bay Lighting club that played last night and was defeated 3-1 by the New York Rangers.

      Sorokin will start Monday vs. Toronto.

      Sorokin will return to the crease for the Islanders on Monday after serving as the backup to Semyon Varlamov in the Islanders' last two games before the All-Star break, both losing efforts. Sorokin has not played since January 23rd and has allowed three or more goals in four of his last five games (1-3-1) but has salvaged a respectable .911 SV% in the process. The Islanders defeated the Maple Leafs 4-3 three weeks ago but are +139 road underdogs on Monday night.

      Sorokin will start Tuesday vs. Vegas.

      Despite Semyon Varlamov being activated from the injured reserve, Sorokin will start for the 10th straight game. Sorokin was tremendous in the Islanders' first game with new head coach Patrick Roy on Sunday, saving 40 of 42 shots (.952 SV%) in a 3-2 overtime victory over the Dallas Stars. Sorokin has struggled to stay consistent this season and has allowed three or more goals in six of his last eight games (2-5-1), posting a pedestrian .902 SV%. The Islanders are -149 home favourites against a Vegas Golden Knights club that played last night and lost 6-5 in overtime to the New Jersey Devils.

      Sorokin allowed four goals on 24 shots in the Islanders' overtime loss in Chicago on Friday. Sorokin has allowed three or more goals in six of his lat seven starts, going 1-5-1 with an .893 SV% during that stretch. Tonight, he'll face a Stars team that has won five of their last seven games while averaging 4.1 goals per game.

      Sorokin will start Friday in Chicago.

      Sorokin will start the eighth straight game on Friday and attempt to snap a three-game losing streak. Sorokin has only one win in his last six outings (1-5-0), allowing three or more goals five times, posting a pedestrian .900 SV%. That said, Sorokin is coming off a great performance in a losing effort, saving 40 of 43 shots (.930 SV%) in a 4-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. The Islanders have a favourable matchup as they are -250 road favourites against a Chicago Blackhawks club that played last night and was shut out 3-0 by the Buffalo Sabres

      Sorokin will start in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

      Sorokin will get the nod again on Tuesday after being pulled in Tuesday's loss to the Wild, marking the first time this season that the Islanders' starting netminder will start both ends of a back-to-back. Sorokin wasn't particularly poor on Monday, allowing three goals on 32 shots through two periods, as the move to pull him was likely done with more of an eye on tonight's game in Winnipeg as the Islanders were trailing the Wild by three goals heading into the third. Sorokin owns a 13-10-8 record on the season to go along with a .909 SV% and a 3.18 GAA.

      Sorokin will start Thursday vs. Toronto.

      Sorokin will continue his hold on the Islanders' crease on Thursday, marking appearances in eight straight games as Semyon Varlamov remains out of the lineup due to an injury. However, his increased workload has not resulted in improved play. In his last seven games (2-4-1), Sorokin has allowed four or more goals four times, posting a subpar .888 SV%. Sorokin and the Islanders are +115 home underdogs on Thursday against the Toronto Maple Leafs, despite defeating them 4-3 less than a month ago when Sorkin saved 37 of 40 shots (.925 SV%).

      Sorokin will start Tuesday vs. Vancouver.

      With Semyon Varlamov still sidelined with no definitive return timeline, Sorokin will start for the seventh time in the last eight games, his busiest stretch of play this season. That said, the increased workload hasn't been beneficial to Sorokin. In his last seven appearances (3-3-1), he has allowed four or more goals four times, posting a subpar .892 SV% in the process. Things won't get easier for Sorokin and the Islanders as they face off against a high-flying Vancouver Canucks team that defeated the New York Rangers last night by a score of 6-3.
