A Bit of Long Island

Those pesky Islanders are going to be a challenge tonight.  Last year, they were one of the only 5 Eastern teams to pull off a win against us.  Right now, despite being at the bottom of the Eastern standings (and Lambert's complaining about the Canucks racking up points against weaker NW teams?  Check out the East, that's how they roll out there!), they are 7-3-0 in their last 10 games.  In the last couple weeks, they have beaten both the Red Wings and the Penguins.  Be wary of this team, they seem to like playing spoilers right now.  Also of note is that this will be the first time we see Michael Grabner since we traded him.  His line was recently very much involved in shutting down Sidney Crosby's point streak, so keep an eye on him tonight.
