Islanders website: Has the preview for Saturday afternoon's 2pm game against the Montreal Canadians.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
We all know what's happening not only in the division but in the conference. Islanders went up to Montreal a year ago and pulled out a big win around this time and they have to do it today or at least put out their best effort as a team and see if that's enough.
Montreal is coming off a 5-4 ot loss where to Washington where Ovechkin scored four goals. The Habs have been an excellent team all year with a lot of speed and skill that dominated both Coliseum games. They came back from three goals down in that game to force overtime and had won three in a row going in.
Simply put it's getting late and the Islanders are going to have to score some hard working goals and play some defense or they are going to find themselves six points out with at least two clubs between them and eighth. There's not time for anything but this teams best game.
Ted Nolan said this club will define itself by it's second half.
