In a world where John Druce can burst out of nowhere to score in seven straight playoff games (man, remember how surreal that was?), you know anything is possible. You also know it's not bloody likely.
But the Devils are dressing Kevin Weekes and Jay nine-straight-healthy-scratches Pandolfo -- so maybe, just maybe, they'll take the Isles too lightly, the way they received Atlanta for a 4-0 spanking oh, a month ago? Maybe the Islanders' four-line flow continues, and they pick up a Streit-less powerplay goal?
New York Islanders (16-31-6, 30th) at New Jersey Devils (34-17-3, 3rd/E)
