The Isles get set to take on the Flyers tonight in a rematch from last Saturday. Not needed to be said but tonight's game will get chippy to say the least. Katie Strang with a good read on the bad blood that exists between the two teams. "There won't be Christmas cards exchanged on that end of the hallway," Konopka told Strang today. I would put a bet that there are at least 2 or more fights during tonight's match up.
As for the on ice line up Trent Hunter will play tonight, however Scott Gordon was not forthcoming on who will be sitting out. In net, Dwayne Roloson will get the start tonight for the Islanders. Scott Gordon told reporters that he wanted to "keep Ricky away from the scene of the crime."A move to help relieveDipietro from any more mental anguish. Not too much on lines for tonight although Matt Martin was practicing on John Tavares's wing this morning. My guess is you will see Martin play a good chunk of the game on a line with Tavares.
Spoke to some of the guys thismorning about the upcoming battle with the Flyers, the six game losing skid and other odds and ends concerning the Islanders. ENJOY.
