Here is a chance for the Islanders to pick up a big win, and regain some confidence. Columbus is 1-3-1 in their last five games, and their starting goaltender, Leclaire, is still nursing his ankle injury. According to Greg Logan, Okposo will be on the first line with Weight and Geurin.
Gordon put the Islanders through more video, and literally, a tougher practice yesterday to "enforce" the players what he expects from them. If the practice was received by the players, the fans should be happier with tonight's end result.
For me, I want to see some points racked up by the kids. The Blue Jackets are a team in a slump, and I think we need to see how the younger players can score against a lower level team in the NHL.
