Folks, this is it. The biggest game for the Islanders in 27 years. Game 7. Not much more that needs to be said about it.

I gotta tell you, the nerves are running wild. But I’m excited nonetheless and I’m ready. I know you are, too.

The Islanders are going with Thomas Greiss in net tonight.

Greiss came on in relief of Semyon Varlamov in Game 2 and the only goal he allowed was the overtime winner. He also started the second half of a back-to-back in Game 4 this past Sunday and made 36 saves in an Islanders win. I like the choice.

Barry Trotz hinted at lineup changes for Game 7 and, based on warmups, they’re certainly possible.

I’m curious to see who makes the final lineup. Johnny Boychuk is best when he’s fresh, and I do expect to see him. Not sure for who, though.

For the Flyers, top center Sean Couturier is on for warmups, as well. We’ll see if he plays.

It’s time.
