PS gotta put the opponent, date, and GT in the title. That's a must. No shortcuts. Post like a champion today, Manti.

Matt Ellis, Patrick Kaleta (IR; neck), Ville Leino (IR; strained right hip), Adam Pardy, Robyn Regehr (IR; high
ankle sprain) and Andrej Sekera (bruised foot) were scratched in Thursday's 5-4 SOW over Montreal. Kaleta and

and Ellis, Cody McCormick and Tyler Myers are healthy scratches.

Weekly Transactions

Buffalo recalled defenseman Adam Pardy from AHL/Rochester on Monday, only to loan him back yesterday.

According to the Stats

Buffalo were 2-2-0 in four games versus NYI last season, with Ryan Miller appearing twice and stopping 65 of 69

two goals and two assists, and Jason Pominville, with four assists. Currently, they have allowed four or more
goals in six straight games and are tied with Washington for the most goals allowed (41) on the season.

Lineup News & Notes

Nabokov starts in goal. Eric Boulton, Joe Finley and Marty Reasoner are scratched.

NYI traded a conditional pick to Boston for suspended goalie Tim Thomas on Thursday.

According to the Stats

of 25 shots against (1-0-0, 2.00 GAA, .920 SV%). Frans Nielsen, with three goals and one assist, and ex-Islander
PA Parenteau, with four assists, were their leading scorers in the series. They are also 5-1-1 in their last seven

7-4 Isles

Tavares, Moulson, Boulton, Boyes, Okposo, Finley, Streit

Vanek, Poms, Hodgson, Grigorenko

We are 0-56-2 in our last 58 against the Isles, and Tavares tends to exhibit über talent versus us... This game has "absolute disaster" written all the **** over it

Debating whether or not I should trek through the snow & spend money to watch this debacle in person? Or just wait until we come to NJ and at least watch a loss in the confines of a modern, state-of-the-art arena.

What do you think ?

9-2 Islanders..by the end of the game Jochen Hecht will be promoted to the second line, and he will be on the PP as well....Lindy's MVP.

Or a realist.

Not for nothing, asbestos aside, there's a cool feeling taking in a game from NVMC. I couldn't begin to explain it properly, but it has something to do with the coziness... One gigantic parking lot, tiny concourses, reminders of the Aud kick off every time I'm there. Can't explain.

Unlike SwordsgoneWild, I say go to the game, unless your disposable income goes towards your iguana fund, in which case do not.

#YOLO
YOLO and YOSSLTTFTAY (you only see sabres live two to five times a year)...

My iguana fund strikes me as more important right now. I'm leaning towards staying home.

It has stopped snowing, finally. I can take the two iguanas that I own for their breakfast walk soon - though bed to kill this alkie binge is a much more enticing and intelligent idea right now (compared to walking my igwannaz - they can wait to poop or excrete or whatever they do)

_______

From the injury thread above:

Kaleta and Sekera cleared to play.

Both better be suiting up.

Iguana fund... Can't get over that. Kid strikes again.

GUANO BOWLS. COLLECT THE WHOLE SET.

Let me guess ... White devil, white devil?

Additionally, iguanas and guano bowls aside, Isles have been kind of fun to watch this year. I'm torn. Going to sleep on it for a couple hours.

Just realized that Myers is a -9...

Although +/- stats aren't always super duper indicators for how a player plays, this stat kinda reflects his season so far...
