Islanders website: Has the preview of Sunday's game against the Florida Panthers.
Islanders reported earlier this season the 1500 banner for Al Arbour will be replaced this weekend with a 740 banner. I wonder if the Hall of Fame Banner will be altered to include all seven players part of the four championships which includes Lorne Henning who won two as a coach.
No doubt it will be a fantastic ceremony and another first class event by management. No game report until late tonight or Monday morning.

4pm: New York vs Florida
We all know the circumstances for the 07-08 Islanders and Panthers, two very desperate clubs that cannot really afford many more regulation losses. Florida has lost three in a row. Isles according to reports had Mike Mole in Bridgeport and Dubie will start today. I guess we'll see what's decided but whoever is in goal the team has to shake off yesterday's loss and keep working and you start with winning a shift at a time. Dubie's paid to be professional goaltender and it's his job to make sure he's ready for his role if the call comes and I suspect if he does start his play will not be a negative.
We all know a lot of players are due for a goal on this roster, it's time to step up and produce.
