Jean-Francois Berube to make first start of the season for Islanders

The New York Islanders are giving goalie Jean-Francois Berube his first start of the season versus the Buffalo Sabres on Friday.

What It Means:

Berube has been the Islanders third goalie all year, making it into only one game playing six minutes and stopping the only shot he saw. He holds a career save percentage of .915 in eight career games. The 25-year-old will have a tough test on Friday as the Sabres have scored 3.29 goals per game in their last seven contests.

Our models have Berube as the third-best goalie option on Friday, with a projected 51.0 percent chance of a win, while stopping 27.3-of-29.5 shots faced.
