Martin Brodeur is the only player out of the Devils lineup with defenseman John Oduya's expected return. Scott Clemmensen is the likely starter with the Devils off Thurday even if Kevin Weekes has played the Islanders in Newark and won earlier this year.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Kings went into Newark and won 3-1 Saturday, Islanders a year ago dominated the Devils with Brodeur in goal but this season has been a different story with the Devils size, speed and skill proving too much for the Islanders so far.
They also dismantled the Thrashers 5-1 on the road before that.
New Jersey as usual is proving the team is more than about one player, chasing a division title and it's been impressive on a lot of new levels with Brent Sutter's coaching.
Again only questions for Islanders is if Streit plays or MacDonald starts this game, Scott Gordon did not wish to disclose his goaltender during last night's press conference.
Islanders have been in every game, no reason to think they cannot compete and win here if they get some scoring.
