Nelson to be scratched, ending consecutive game streak.

Brock Nelson's consecutive game streak will end tonight at 202 regular season games -- it was the longest active streak as an Islander, for the Islanders.

Nikolay Kulemin is slated to play in his 150th consecutive regular season Islander game (and 218th consecutive regular season game overall).  Anders Lee is scheduled to play in his 144th consecutive regular season game.

Both Lee (twice) and Nelson (once) were scratched during last year's playoff series.
Nelson by the numbers:
