John Tavares will get his first taste of NHL action tonight as the New York Islanders visit the Edmonton Oilers.
Tavares, who missed Monday's preseason match against the Vancouver Canucks because of the flu, is feeling better and will skate in an NHL game for the first time. Also, former Oilers goalie Dwayne Roloson is expected to start in goal for the Islanders against his former club.
Both O'Sullivan and Comrie will get the night off as Edmonton switches up its top lines tonight. Sam Gagner will play between Robert Nilsson and Ales Hemsky, while Andrew Cogliano centres a line with Dustin Penner and Jordan Eberle.
