Rangers vs Islanders - what can I expect? Oh, and a Gaborik question

After catching three games in November I have managed to book a five day trip in March to catch two Rangers games - the Islanders and the Canadians.

As a soccer fan, local derbies are the biggest game of the year - often more important than league position.

I was just wondering what to expect from the Islanders game really, having never been to a derby in US Sport.

Have featured it in my blog as well if anyone is bored stupid and has a spare five minutes:

Also, in another question altogether, why does Gaborik get used for penalty killing? I watched the Penguins game in ESPN and he seemed to be at fault for one of their goals - not that it mattered in the end.

As a relative hockey novice, I was just wondering as to the thinking behind using a predominantly attacking player in a PK situation. I seem to remember while watching a game a few weeks back the commentator said it was something aimed at getting Gaborik to put in a shift.
