I gotta work on Saturday night myself.

99% I won't be able to stream the game. I will be able to listen to the game without a problem though. Very divided on whether or not to DVR and try to ignore everything around me, or to listen. Super excited and I want to actually watch the game. And watching is not the same if you know what happens.

That can be a very bad thing though, sometimes when you play teams also in the hunt they are playing tight, playing teams who don't care is often a bad thing. Add in the fact Tortorella is not necessarily the most loved guy by players and coaches around the league and the whole world loves to see New York, especially the big guns like the Rangers, Yankees, and Giants get beat I don't expect any teams to be giving them an easy game. This is where the smaller market lesser knowns like Winnipeg and the Isles have an advantage, less of a target on their back by the opposition.

Anyone still awake, pop on WFAN with Steve Sommers if you wanna hear some hockey talk/Islanders hate lol. About every 2 minutes or so, even in the middle of an interview with a Knicks beat writer, he interupts everyone to sarcastically say "Was that Nabokov with another save??"

Plenty of callers have been calling in talking Isles. Sommers keeps saying how the Isles will get killed on Sat.

One especially funny moment was a caller from Lindenhurst who mentioned how our second line has been nasty lately, and when he said it was centered by Frans Nielsen, Sommers perfectly timed a funny "Who?" lol

Its slighty irritating but at the same time quite entertaining to hear the Islanders being talked about all night.

So, it looks like the B's will be down two: Bergeron and Marchand, or 2/3's of their top line, and two of their best players and leaders. The Volchenkov elbow on Marchand was dirty, but Marchand was coming in with his stick high, as he often does.

In any case, tonight's game is looking eve more winnable. B's may run out of gas around half way through tonight. Time to take advantage.

That's one word for it. Gosh, Michelleti gets so lost in hyperbole that he doesn't even care about actually analyzing the game anymore.

One of the best american players ever? Epitomizes the sport? Stepan?

That is so lazy and irresponsible from an HF boards poster never mind an NHL color commentator. What a complete joke. Don't miss him at all, now Jaffe, that's another story.

Butch did call Josh Bailey one of the best players in the league (if not the best) when healthy at the beginning of the year.

From what I remember Michelleti was pretty level headed and balanced and announcing Isles games, now it seems he is approaching Jack Edwards levels.

I find Sommers hilarious because the guy is so over the top. He does it on purpose just to get under the skins of Isles fans and can get away with it because he's usually in the post-game, on-air slot where only die hard FAN listeners tune in. I laugh along with him most of the time.

I'm pretty sure the only personality that respects the islanders on that station is Evan Roberts. And maybe joe beningo

Yeah, Joe is a Rangers fan, but he gives credit where credit is due to the Islanders.

How can you love Sommers, that guy is an idiot and doesn't know anything about sports. His voice bothers me.

Evan Roberts is the best guy on WFan imo, he knows his sports and he's not a homer at all.

At the most important part of the year he's on the bench? No way, I'd go out on a limb and say the reason we are 7-1-1 over the last 9 games has more to do with Nabby then any other 1 person on the team. Ride him til he bucks now
I'll make this easy for you


you play Nabby every game the rest of the way you bomb out 0-4 in 1st round-- IF THE TEAM GETS THAT FAR. The guy has been outstanding when the D has faltered. But he's still human.

seriously people have no concept of strategy. collect and gather your strengths for when it matters.

when the Preds clinched a playoff spot last season Trotz rested 3 of his top 6 in the last game.

. The isles will lose to the bruins regardless, why waste a game on an important player who will be needed later on?
