Plenty of pre-game talk and links here and a.m. reactions to last night's game here, but consider this one our in-game thread and place for reactions to tonight's game as the Devils visit Nassau Coliseum. The game will be streamed here for in-market fans and proxy magicians.
Johan Hedberg starts for the Devils. Al Montoya starts for the Islanders, with Kevin Poulin scheduled to appear in relief. The official site has some video from young Ryan Strome and Nino Niederreiter about playing in front of the home fans and trying to make an impression for coaches.
Isles expected lineup is posted again after the jump, but otherwise have thread and be merry. Go Islanders.
Matt Moulson, John Tavares, Nino Niederreiter
Michael Grabner, Frans Nielsen, Kyle Okposo
Jay Pandolfo, Ryan Strome, Tim Wallace
Matt Martin, Josh Bailey, Trevor Gillies
Mark Streit, Steve Staios
Mark Eaton, Milan Jurcina
Aaron Ness, Travis Hamonic
While Marty Reasoner skated today sounds like he's not ready so Bailey plays on back-to-back nights here (as does Gillies and unsigned tryouts Staios and Pandolfo).
