Not too much to be written here, Toronto after playing in Atlanta and beating up the Thrashers came home Tuesday and playing it's fourth game in six nights got beat big by Dallas.
Not sure what Toronto team we will see but they can skate and score, Islanders cannot as they are heading for decade streaks for losing that go back to the late nineties with a group that simply cannot score enough or keep the puck out of it's net.
Islanders are due for a win, but that means nothing.
Maybe things did settle down a little against struggling Nashville and Atlanta to where they played be more competitive or those are just two teams not much better, we'll see.
If Weight returns, another forward has to sit. Does Scott Gordon just go with a different healthy scratch or is Sim the designated bench warmer? I would keep Comeau-Comrie-Okposo as a line for better or worse.
Three games in four nights with a trip to Buffalo followed by a second home/road game at Msg Monday.
