The Islanders are struggling too. They have only won 2 of their last 8 games. They just lost 2 in a row to Edmonton and Calgary. So there is a chance the Canucks can beat them then? Of course! We bitch about John Tortorella and Mike Gillis. These guys have Garth Snow and Charles Wang-nut.. Things could always be worse right? I almost feel bad for these guys.

-No Tavares for the Islanders. No Daniel Sedin for the Canucks. Each team is missing star players. The difference here is that John Tavares can actually play hockey this year. He has more assists than any other Canuck has overall points. No, I am not bitter.

-The Islanders are 11-4-1 in their last 16 road games. They have played better away from home most of the season. Both losses to the Oilers and Flames were the result of blown 2-goal leads. Well Islander fans and players, YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE. You get a 1-2 goal lead on this current Canucks squad and you're gold, Jerry. Not only are they having a hard time scoring goals, they get deflated as a team when they fall behind.

Seriously, I'm not bitter or angry.

I have to keep this preview short. I have already rambled about the Canucks' situation here. I will save the Shitlist for next game. But I can tell you that Schroeder, Booth and Weber are off it. Each got a point last game and I am feeling generous.

The Score-Predicting Wizards List will be updated by next game.

The last time these 2 teams met, GOALS HAPPENED:

In the 1982 Finals, goals happened too. But all for the wrong team:

On second thought, I don't feel bad for Islanders fans at all! They made me cry as an 8 year-old. Burn Islanders BURN!
