This afternoon, after a basically pathetic showing the other night the Islanders look to come out & show that the other night was just rust coming off as they play host to Mikko Koivu & the Minnesota Wild. The starting goalie will be announced in the morning so be sure to check out Arthur Staples twitter for that. I personally have no clue who will start, I could see them going either way. Minnesota forward Pierre Marc-Bouchard will not be suiting up for this game because it was announced today that he would be suspended two games. So having the Wild lose him defiantly works in the Isles favor.
Like, I said hopefully the Islanders can rebound and show that Saturdays game was just them getting the rust off because if its not then there is going be a pretty pissed off crowd at the old barn in Hempstead tomorrow!!!
