NJ Devils vs. NY Islanders @ 7pm EST - 10/28

Hopefully Gomez and Elias will play like they did last season when Patrik had his four goal game. This team needs to break out with some big goal scoring in the worst way.

UNIONDALE, New York (Ticker) -- The New York Islanders try to remain perfect at Nassau Coliseum this season when they host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

The Islanders, who are aiming for a fourth victory in five games, routed Pittsburgh here on Saturday, 7-2, to improve to 3-0 at home.

Rookie Trent Hunter scored his first two NHL goals and Mariusz Czerkawski also tallied twice. Defenseman Janne Niinimaa, Jason Blake and rookie Sean Bergenheim also scored, with Bergenheim recording his first career goal.

The Islanders, who jumped out to a 3-0 first-period lead, have outscored opponents by 14-5 in the opening 20 minutes.

The Devils have lost three of their last four contests, including a 5-2 home setback to Boston on Saturday.

Patrik Elias scored on the power play and Jamie Langenbrunner tallied a shorthanded goal in the first period, but the Devils could not hold an early 2-1 lead.

The Devils went 4-0-1 against the Islanders last season.

Brodeur makes a great glove save on Sean Bates who had a breakaway.

1-0 Nj

Friesen scores on the rebound. Good play by Colin White. Dipietro turns over the puck behind his own net.

Good first period overall. Friesen was continually finishing his checks against Peca well and it seemed like the entire team was paying similar attention to the finer details in the hitting department. Berglund had one solid hit early on.

Not a very good 1st period IMO. Very boring, dump and chase hockey. Little legitimate SC for either team. Freeze had a nice goal, but other than that, our PP stunk and no real scoring chances for us.

You are right about the checking, everyone seemed to be finishing their checks.

It was a stalemate of a chess match for most of the first with the Isles playing the same style as us to the T. Shots were very low. Nieds made one great play to catch up to Bates to prevent another good Isles scoring chance. Sharks announcers feel that Nabokov has the best glove hand in the NHL, but that save by Brodeur on Bates was as good as it gets imo.

Agreed. Amazing glove save. Highlight reel material right there.

OHHHHHHHHHHH, Gionta almost tipped that one in. Good scoring chance to start the 2nd, though.

Aside: I appreciate Matt & the Maven a lot more after seeing Deb & the Maven.

EDIT: PANDOLFO! MAYBE! YES! THE REF SAYS YES!

Langenbrunner breakaway? No. Madden on the stuff in? No. But Pandolfo? Yes. Further proof that he is a goal scoring machine.

Pandolfo finishes off the breakaway rush from Langs which DiPietro stopped. Good hustle from Madden and Pandolfo.

Wow. If it wasn't for an Islander, Sergei Brylin almost had a chance to make it 3-0. Devils looking really good early on.

2nd period over. The caption on the Islanders telecast said Scott Friesen when they were interviewing Freeze.

Devils still looking good up 2-0 goin into the 3rd.

The Devils played well in the 2nd, save for a few penalties and mistakes (which Brodeur bailed NJ out of).

Now, I know they can't read this, but I'd like to give the Devils the following message:

DON'T BLOW IT IN THE THIRD. AGAIN.

Maybe Burns will try that.

Burns: "OK, what period are we going into?"

Devils: "The th-"

(Burns holds up...A Rangers jersey!)

Devils: "FIRST! IT'LL BE THE FIRST!"

Burns: "Good."

There's no greater gift than coming home after a long day at work to a 2-0 Devils lead....

Poor Mad Dog. He can't buy a goal to save his life right now. Gotta get one off his thigh or knee pretty soon just to get him going.

Yea the announcers were saying he's off to a slow start. 0 points so far.

Well when Lady Vanya is home at her place... I'll take the 2-0 lead...


(And if it's the playoffs, I'll take it over LV anyway!)

I'm with you there. The little lady is back at home while I'm at college, so all i get to come home to is a roommate who's studying or drunk most of the time. Damn college kids.
