Media Blog: Cory Witt updated his blog and reports it looks like Kari Lehtonen will get the nod for Atlanta in goal along with some other items.

Mike Comrie and Trent Hunter will wear the “A” on their jersey's until the injured Mike Sillinger and Brendan Witt return to the lineup.

The Islander telecast will have a pregame tonight for what that is worth.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
The format of Msg doing content for three teams on occasional pregames at best has been a total failure on every possible level.

In my opinion Islander fans are not interested in Al Trautwig or Stan's Fischler opinion of the Islanders and only seem to appear to make sure to plug the Garden's team.

This is a format that needs to be dumped because now I see these pregames and go out of my way to avoid them.

If a game is on FSN-2 we do not even know there is a pregame because the cable guide for Time Warner does not list a game, just tv guide channel programming.

Newsday: Greg Logan's blog was on Bryan Berard who had a lot to say about all the time he has been on the bench this year, the powerplay and his role and what he's trying to do when he is in the lineup. He also talks about how the turnovers may stick in Ted Nolan's mind but likes being here.

I'm not sure if I will have a postgame blog afterward. It will either be tonight or Sunday afternoon.
