Islanders website: Has the early preview for tonight's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Roll the dice on the injuries with Sutton vs Pock/Hillen sitting. Bill Guerin just called a players-only meeting, the team has not been producing points at home and face a struggling opponent that just gave up four goals in the third against Pittsburgh with Cam Ward hardly dominating in net so far.
Standings do not lie folks with teams piling up the points and opening a significant lead even for October. Flyers just went ahead of the Islanders who now reside in the basement, with games against the trapping Rangers on Monday and fast-skilled Montreal along with a Flyer club that seems to be finally breaking out Islanders need to get something started at this point or things could go south quickly.
Newsday: Mr Logan has two updates in the Islanders Newsday blog. One on Hillen/Pock starting tonight because Andy Sutton is still not quite ready and the other a lengthy one on the teams system and the time and patience it will take along with a lot of other items as related to the Dallas game along with a brief evaluation of the young players and the goal-tenders stickhandling.
