Islanders vs. Capitals [Game 77 Thread]

That poor Beagle just got run over by a speeding de Haan. - Patrick Smith

Michael Grabner is returning to the lineup today, slotted to play with Cal Clutterbuck and Brock Nelson.

The scratch victim is Johan Sundstrom (officially returned to Bridgeport today), bringing the Islanders to a perilously low number of rookies -- just seven plus Anders Nilsson, who is backup to Evgeni Nabokov today. (Braden Holtby starts for the Caps.)

Nabokov will try to keep Alex Ovechkin from getting his 50th goal of the season.

Pain over there: Japers' Rink

Definitely check out Japers' Rink, as they digest chaos and pain like few others can. But as an aside, I never knew Capitals writer Mike Vogel had such a dashing head of hair.
