Puck drop between the New York Islanders (5-2-1) and Toronto Maple Leafs (5-0-0) is just moments away.

Tonight, the Maple Leafs will look to improve their extremely surprising record to 5-0-0 against a New York Islanders team that has also surprised many fans and members of the media.

Jean-Sebastien Giguere is expected to get the start in net. Giguere is 3-0-0 this season with a goals against average of 1.98 and a save percentage of .914. Three games into the season and the 33-year-old still has yet to give up a questionable goal.

Clarke MacArthur, meanwhile, will be attempting to extend his goal scoring streak to five games. MacArthur, a native of Lloydminster, Alberta, has scored five goals and an assist already this season while going plus-2.

On the other side, Islanders forward Josh Bailey has exploded out of the gate as well. Bailey, 21, has scored three goals and four assists in five games.

Last season, the Leafs lost to the Islanders three times, including a 58-save performance from Dwayne Roloson.
