The Islanders expect forward Mikhail Grabovski back in the lineup tonight when they play host to the Dallas Stars.
Capuano: Grabovski likely to start w/Nielsen and Kulemin, Conacher starts with Tavares and Okposo. Johnson in goal. #Isles

Grabovski has been out of New York’s lineup since Oct. 16 with a concussion as a result of a hit he received from San Jose Sharks tough guy John Scott.
The 30-year-old has two goals and three points in four games this season.
In a corresponding move, the Islanders have placed forward Josh Bailey (broken hand) on injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 23.
