Boston 3 New York 2 (Bridgeport)

New York Islander Fan Central | 10/01/2011 03:40:00 PM |

Cut downs and possible Niederreiter news expected on Sunday.

New York lost 3-2. See twitter feed for what little there was in a game where video feed did not work for one period, with no sound until 13:00 minutes left.

Montoya was said to play very well. Tavares scored at five on three, Comeau made a great circle around offensive zone, before putting it in front to Reasoner who scored.

Islanders website: Released the Islanders lineup vs Boston tonight at Webster Bank Arena, which will be an ITV webcasted game.

Some twitter updates, but not a lot tonight unless something significant happens, obviouly Niederreiter out (also Rolston) places Parenteau back with Tavares-Moulson and no true right wing alternative.

A lot of veteran defenders. Streit plays back to back.

MacDonald finally gets a game. Seems the goaltending will play out as the two veteran goaltenders (DiPietro-Nabokov) will get most work vs one who was in the AHL last season, and finished out the year playing well, and was rewarded.

Sorry, but reports of Nabokov starting in Bridgeport were incorrect, Montoya started.

As an older fan, I'm used to the regulars getting a lot of games together at the end of preseason, however perhaps in today's NHL the standard (especially here) is to come out of it healthy which will not happen.

In the end, regardless of my thought process or what's transpired in the past, practically every team will not be playing games for close to a week before opening the season.

Florida comes here in a week, who finished their preseason earlier than the Islanders, not like there is a carryover effect.

If last season taught us anything, 4-1-2 and what happened afterward had nothing to do with preseason beyond Streit-Okposo injuries.
