Tonight the Islanders are playing the Carolina Hurricanes, and this game is huge. If the Islanders win, the move up to a 2nd Wild Card Spot! The Islanders need to make the playoffs if you want John Tavares to sign. As of now, the goalie is unconfirmed, so we don’t know how this game is going to go. Basically, if Greiss starts we lose. If Halak starts we have a chance. Halak recorded a 50 save shutout last night against the Rangers. So, will Doug Weight let him rest, or will he realize the importance of this game and start Jaro? Hopefully, he’ll start Halak and play Barzal. Barzal also recorded a 3-assist night against the Rangers. This game lies in the hands of Doug Weight, and the defense. They’ve been playing pretty badly lately. Anyway, this game is very important in the fate of the Islanders and John Tavares.
EDIT: THOMAS GREISS IS STARTING AGAINST THE HURRICANES, AND WE’RE GOING TO LOSE.
