The New York Islanders take on the Montréal Canadiens in the Centre Bell. This is a schedule loss for the Islanders going into a rested team's building after defeating the Penguins last night. They fortunately get to avoid Carey Price who is out with an injury, but it will still be a tough game. Montréal has the largest stadium in the league and the fans can be quite vitriolic (think Flyers level negativity).

Let's try and keep it a bit more civil tonight. The whole taking quotes from different boards out of context (after they were so kind as to do a Q.&A. session with us no less), throwing misogynistic insults at both players and opposing fans and trolling opposing message boards is not a good look. Some of the comments were quite abhorrent.
