Pre Game: Isles @ Panthers!!!
Tonight our New York Islanders continue their road trip to Florida to take on David Booth and the Florida Panthers.
Lets hope tonights game is better then Thursdays. Thursdays game was basically an utter embarrassment when compared to the two games before it. Lets hope the team shows some life and is actually able to do something and is maybe able to get some revenge on them for the home opener.
Evgeni Nabakov will start for the Isles tonight against Jose Theodore. Blake Comeau will be returning to the lineup tonight. This was long overdue and didn't see the point to scratching him the way they have. Sean Bergenheim is injured for Florida so he will not be playing today.
Last note, Brian Rolston will not be playing tonight because his wife is giving birth to their child. So I would expect Martin to remain on the 3rd line and for Comeau to take Rolstons spot & for Gillies to stay on line four.
