I'm not going to be available to watch tonight's game but will record it and have a full post-game report Friday morning.
Islanders website: Has the early preview of tonight's game in Atlanta against the Thrashers.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
For Atlanta Marian Hossa and Pascal Dupuis are gone but Colby Armstrong, Erik Christensen replace them and the Islanders face a team a team that is not only desperate but facing a club that dominated them in New York less than two weeks ago.

Alexei Zhitnik missed a game with the flu this week.
On the Islanders end of things simply put Boston, Buffalo, Rangers keep gaining points with games in hand and they are getting some seperation from the Islanders who need two points from this game to carry into the weekend and just to keep pace on some of these clubs with most of the teams playing three point games. Brendan Witt traveled to Atlanta after practicing so we'll see if he plays.
Cory Will will likely have game notes in his media blog here after the morning skate. I would expect before the game whoever traveled to Atlanta will have something in the Newsday blog.
Ct Post: Will likely have the Sound Tigers clear day roster on his blog this afternoon or Bridgeport Sound Tigers.com will release the list after AHL.com provides the update on the 3pm deadline today.
