Caps website: Has the early preview of tonight's game.
Islanders website: Should have something later.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Washington is coming off a loss at Montreal but before that went to Detroit and lost in a shootout Monday, beat the Bolts, Rangers and Devils between losing 5-3 against Buffalo.
Kolzig has been struggling and under a little pressure but is a quality goaltender, Washington on any given night can put up five goals.
Anyone who thinks this is two points in the bank may find themselves disappointed.
Should be interesting to see what the merit system produces tonight in terms of lines but a win usually means the same lineup. Long time between games for Bryan Berard now. Bergeron cannot be very happy with this either, especially if Sutton plays after another whiff led to a goal.
Islanders have to get something from Guerin, Comrie and Sillinger or they need a repeat performance from their fourth line with a lot more from Satan, Vasicek and Hunter's line or expect the Isles to play for the low scoring game. If pattern goes like last time Dubie could start but I'm doubtful that will happen because no one is talking about it and they did not respond for Dubie against Atlanta.
Freddy Meyer kicked the puck that led to the rush for Hunter's goal for those who watched closely.
We'll see what happens tonight, but with Ottawa looming on the road and the Devils, Islanders need this game.
Sound Tigers are home Saturday against Mancheter at 7pm
