It was just announced that the Calgary Flames have claimed Blake Comeau on waivers from the Islanders. Comeau was placed on waivers yesterday. He had no points and was a -11 in 17 games this year. I wish Comeau the best of luck in Calgary and thank him for his service with the Islanders.
Now, later this afternoon, the New Jersey Devils travel to the old barn in Hempstead to take on our New York Islanders.
After being taken off IR the other night, I expect Al Montoya to get the start for the Islanders and I had read that Johan Hedberg will be getting the start for the Devils today.
I wonder if Comeau disappearing on waivers will light any further a fire in the stomachs of any of the players. The know now, that if they don't perform they could be just like Comeau.
Seeing another well played game for the second game in a row would be very nice and show they were able to build on solid play from their prior game.
