"Ladies and gentlemen, on stage for your dancing pleasure, the New York Islanders" - Game Preview and Open Thread

Waiting in line details - 7 PM start, Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Now that's an arena name. Isles coming off big wins against the Flames and the Sens in their last two. On the road, no less. Habs coming off sucking up the joint on Broadway. Both teams are exactly 5-2-3 in their last 10 games. Isles are in 7th in the East (really?), just 3 points behind the Habs (really?). Damn, 4 through 8 are really up for grabs this year.

Pay your cover charge to - The Drive for Five. "The wittiest Isles banter on the net!" OK, then.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - Kovy has 8 points in his last 6 games, and Higgins, while he only has 2 goals in his last 13 games, always plays well at home (for him).

Hot sexy Isles to watch - Rick DiPietro played well against the Sens, and has a 2.52 GAA and .913 save % for the season. Mike Comrie leads the team with 35 points.

Skanky Habs to watch - well, the whole team after the Saturday Night Stinkfest. Carbo said this about that game: "our passing was horrendous, we didn't skate with the puck, we didn't put the puck in the right place, and when the puck was there we just didn't battle for it." Trans: we sucked at every facet of the game.

Skanky Isles to watch - anyone trying to score. Isles are last in the league with only 108 goals in 44 games.

Habs on stage tonight - Huet in nets, no word yet on the line-up shuffle du jour. We'll update as the day goes by, but you can bet Carbo will do something after Saturday night. He's not the patient type.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - Gentlemen's Quarters. "Long Island's premiere upscale gentlemen's club." If you say so.

K let's hear your dirty, dirty thoughts in the comments.

I was listening to XM radio this morning (they even offer CJAD for Habs home games!) and some caller was saying that Isdles fans were booing the Canadian national anthem in the game against Ottawa. I wonder if RDS will show the anthems, for once...

Pat Hickey reports from Long Island that El Breezy took a puck off the foot on Saturday, and will have x-rays tonight. Needless to say, he ain't playing!

ChristoWall has got to be the worst puck-handling goalie we have ever had. That being said, he made some exceptional saves.
