Islanders Gameday vs. Flyers: Please don't hurt us

Complete Coverage >


It's a reflection of this year's unique goalie situation that Dwayne Roloson makes 58 saves Monday ... and sits Wednesday. Martin Biron's in against his old team, Brian Boucher's at the other end. ... Ex-Isle Arron Asham isn't as "out" as previously reported, so he might be in. ... Katie Strang says the Moulson/Tavares/Hunter line stays intact, while Jeff Tambellini plays with Josh Bailey and Jon Sim.

Extremes: Moulson and Tavares have 19 points each, Jeff Carter has 21 and Mike Richards 20. Richard Park and Brendan Witt are each minus-11, Braydon Coburn is minus-4. Moulson, Hillen, Hunter and Nielsen are each plus-6, Matt Carle is plus-18 and Pronger is plus-13. Pronger has 30 PIM, Tim Jackman has 51.

I think I will see this entire game live, but the recap will have to wait until after my annual Thanksgiving Eve pickup hockey and libation festival. But tomorrow's U.S. Thanksgiving, so ... I mean, we got time.

P.M. Prediction: I finally put that old Pronger Blues jersey on eBay. Never wore it anyway.
