Note: I posted Scott Gordon's pre-game on the sidebar which went about eight minutes because it had a lot including Okposo may be ready by the weekend and more injury updates.
Interesting watching some reporters with hand-held recording devices vs writers with the pad and pen the last few days. ITV should keep showing things from those angles.
Freddy Meyer will return tonight, Thomas Pock and Bruno Gervais are healthy scratches. Mr Logan had more in the Islanders Newsday blog here along with more when Sillinger-Okposo are ready what could happen.
Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Rob Rossi scouts the Islanders for tonight's game which includes the Penguins injuries with a second article on Marc-Andre Fleury's roster replacement during his injury in John Curry here.
Dany Sabourin is again expected to start against New York.
Ticker: Previews tonight's game which includes the Penguins struggles in their last game.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
There it is folks. All six defenders are finally healthy and Bruno Gervais sits in the stands. Took almost the entire preseason and 1/4 of the regular season to get what on paper seemed the top six.
It becomes very interesting the longer Gervais sits on the sidelines.
Pittsburgh is 7-1-1 with the 1-1 coming in the last two games but were seeing a team that can score in bunches with a lot of offensive talent and this time Crosby is not coming back from an injury. Sabourin played the previous Coliseum game and won in a shootout but the Islanders led in the third period.
Schedule making this tough with essentially the Islanders home Thanksgiving whatever happens Thursday before they travel to Boston for a noon game. Penguins have been off since Saturday so they have the rest and perhaps the rust?
This worked in the Devils favor recently and on home ice the Islanders have to keep establishing their game which finally led to a few wins.
Satan, Fedotenko and Eric Godard (did not write about him last game) make their second return to the Nassau Coliseum.
