Eric Boulton

The lineup that fans saw in Columbus on Thursday will be the one they see tonight against the Buffalo Sabres.

Eric Boulton, who scored a goal against the Blue Jackets will remain in the lineup and Jaroslav Halak will be in net. Michael Grabner and Tyler Kennedy will once again be healthy scratches. Isles' Coach Jack Capuano says that Boulton brings extra leadership to the bench.

"When you talk about our team he's a great leader," Capuano said. "He's an experienced guy, he plays the right way and for me the emotion on the bench. Especially this time of year is real important for some of our younger guys."

Eric Boulton will be in the lineup when the Islanders take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday. It will just his sixth appearance this season (Islanders).

Boulton last played on March 5 against the Nashville Predators. He saw 7:15 of game time and finished the contest a minus-1 on the night. The 38-year-old tough guy appeared in three games in November and one in December. He has not seen more than 7:48 of ice time in any of those games and he does not have a single point this season.

Frans Nielsen, who left practice early on Wednesday, said he?was good to go for Thursday's game, so it appears Tyler Kennedy will sit so that Boulton can suit up (Staple, Apr 2)
