Gameday: Thrashers at Islanders

New, 110 comments

After last night's rather disappointing loss to the Colorado Avalanche, the Thrashers get the - and I'm going to be kind here - struggling Islanders as a rebound game. It looks like Mason will get his first start in quite awhile. Stats from NHL.com show the Thrashers to be the superior team this year:

The Islanders have had a rough time, seeing many key players go down due to injury, but let's be honest: they're just not a very good team. In just 26 games, the Islanders have already managed to go 11 games below 0.500. Ouch.

The game won't be on local TV, but MSG Plus 2 is televising it, so you should be able to get a feed through Center Ice, Gamecenter Live, or elsewhere. I won't personally be around to watch, as I've got a Christmas party to attend.
