Islanders website: Has the preview for tonight's game against the Montreal Canadians.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
One team is 7-1 and coming off a conference championship, Roman Hamrlik recently returned to the Canadians lineup. The other has it's starting goaltender out along with three of it's key defenders and significant injuries to it's forwards with the club having problems finishing among the veterans and forwards.
The idea of these changes was to play a faster brand of hockey, no team dismantled the Islanders like Montreal last season in the four games so we'll see how Scott Gordon approaches a club with this level of speed and skill.
Everyone know the standings, Islanders have to win some games at this point.
