Islanders Website/AP: Has tonight's early preview for tonight's game against the Rangers at Msg.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Rangers trap is doing a great job protecting the goaltender and their defenders scored all four goals in the previous game. Islanders offense is having problems finishing, but always put on a very strong showing at Msg.
Botttom line Islanders have to make the Rangers defense work harder in their own end and get some quality shots. Their trap is set to allow low percentage shots. On the defensive end Islanders have been outstanding in the recent games outside of one Brendan Witt turnover. Islanders are also going to have to take the puck at their net and force them into some penalties and then the pp has to generate some goals.
Ted Nolan usually outcoaches Tom Renney in these games and in that department he should have a good game plan ready.
