New York Islander Fan Central | 12/26/2007 12:47:00 PM AHL Bridgeport Sound Tigers Hershey Bears NHL NYI Toronto MapleLeafs
Islanders Website/AP: Has the early preview of tonight's game against the Maple Leafs.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Hopefully the fans stand up and give Jason Blake a well deserved standing ovation for all he did for this franchise. Islanders miss his abilities badly because he was of more value to this franchise than any other he could play for.
As for the game Islanders better remember that 8-1 game, come out from the opening minute and try to score against a club that gives up goals if you put on the pressure. Toronto is one of those clubs that can win a 6-5 game so if the Islanders play for a 3-2 game they may not get it.
Scoring has been a little better lately. I expect no lineup changes because Ted Nolan does not make changes after wins, but we'll see because Islanders play in Ottawa tomorrow.
Andrew Raycroft get's the start for the Leafs tonight.
Sound Tigers are at home tonight against Hershey.
