4. The Islanders and Panthers met 12 days ago in the final preseason game this fall with the Panthers coming away with a 6-0 victory and G Tomas Vokoun recording the shutout.

3. Panthers starting G Tomas Vokoun has started nine games against the Islanders and is a stellar 7-2-0 with a 1.87 GAA and two shutouts.

2. Panthers D Karlis Skrastins played in his first game of the season Thursday evening after sitting out the first two games with a back injury. Thursday night Skrastins posted a goal, a plus-1 rating and three blocked shots.
