This afternoon, Zach Parise and the New Jersey Devils travel to Long Island to take on John Tavares and our New York Islanders.
Well given that the Islanders played yesterday and there prior play this season in back to backs, this game should certainly be interesting. This season back to backs the Islanders have usually come up pretty flat. So hopefully Cappy can get them up for this, if he cant that will sure be telling.
I would assume given the teams history this year with the flu that Michael Grabner will once again be out of the lineup. So that means Nino will be in his spot again, I honestly didn't think there line (Cizikas centering Nino and Okposo) played bad yesterday at all. Hopefully they can continue and maybe even pot one today.
The Islanders said that they will have the starters after Jack Capuano talks to the media at around 1:00PM. I have a feeling you wont know who the starting goalie is until then. Nabakov, although he played well, didn't have an easy game yesterday so logic would seem to side with starting Anders Nilsson today. However, Jack has flown in the face of that logic before during this season so the only person who probably knows right now is Jack, and he may not even know yet.
