Islanders Website: Jason Lockhart has a preview for tonight's game against the Devils.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
New Jersey outworked and out skated Philadelphia Thursday in a win and Dainus Zubrus finally had a breakout game for the Devils. Martin Brodeur will be in the net this time for New Jersey. Brent Sutter no doubt has not forgotten the loss to the Islanders and will have his team ready. On the Islanders end I expect Ted Nolan to play the same lineup because he does not like to change after a win. The newsday report says Bergenheim and Berard may need a little more time to get into game condition.
Games in hand are nice but mean nothing unless the team wins. Islanders are 8-4 and those two blow out losses to Carolina and Toronto have them about even in terms of goals scored and goals allowed. In terms of finishing Guerin, Sillinger, Comrie are all due to score a few goals. Hilbert, Simon and Richard Park also could use a goal to get them going despite how they are doing other things to help the club win.
A small complaint but a reasonable one because it's not the first time I have seen this. When the club does it's own preview it only tells fans on Long Island where everyone can catch the games on television. Not just a Long Island fan base watching these games, please make sure every Islander fan in the Tri-state knows where they can view the game.
For instance if your a Devils fan with Time Warner Cable looking to see Emrick and Resch on FSN-2 in the New York area, Time Warner does not activate FSN-2 when it's two local rivals so Devils fans would have to watch the Islander telecast until the replay later where FSN would finally show the Devils version of the telecast in the middle of the night.
