Pre Game: Blizzard Day Sabres @ Islanders

Tonight, after winter storm nemo blasted the north east last night, the Islanders play host to the Buffalo Sabres.

According to reports, the Sabres got in last night before the storm so this game will be played. 

The starting goalies have yet to be named for either team.  But if I had to guess id say it'll be Ryan Miller for the Sabres and Rick Dipietro for the Islanders.

With the Islanders lifting the suspensions of Lubomir Visnovsky and Josh Bailey yesterday I fully expect them to be in the lineup tonight.

For the Sabres Patrick Kaleta and Andrej Sekera will be returning to their lineup.  Making room for Sekera young Tyler Myers is a healthy scratch tonight.

Hopefully the new additions will give the Islanders a much needed spark because in a shortened season like this you cant afford to go on 3+ game losing streaks.
