Tonight the Broadway blue shirts from NYC pay a visit to the Nassau Coliseum to take on John Tavares and our New York Islanders.
It was announced this morning that Evgeni Nabakov would start in net for the isles tonight. Also today the Islanders officially took Trevor Gillies off IR so it should be interest as to weather or not he will crack the lineup tonight or be scratched. With started Nabakov over Montoya, I hope this is another Cappy gut feeling because I would've started Montoya the way he has been playing & its really risky starting Nabakov especially in a game like this.
The Rangers are playing their first game in a week so if the Islanders can jump on them early it could set them up great for the rest of the game. Rangers I think are going to be flat early on because they will be getting their legs under them so the Islanders need to capitalize on that.
If your going to the game have fun & be safe and hopefully we see an Islander win to close out this home stand & keep the Rangers win less!!
