In lieu of posting a single comical photo of people from Long Island, I'll just direct you to this page, which features a wealth of comical photos of people from Long Island. It is a true treasure trove.
So, yeah, the Islanders! I'm glad to see they've laid the foundations for finally becoming a quality team again (Tavares, Okposo, Moulson), but I'd be a damn liar if I said I didn't want them to lose tonight.
Hey, ever notice that Andy Sutton ALWAYS scores on us when we play the Isles?
Well, worry no more. The man is injured at the moment, so hooray!
It hardly needs to be said that this game gives the Thrashers a great opportunity to extend their winning streak to 5 games. Winning this one would give us 33 points, which would make things very interesting not only in the Eastern Conference (where they're already mighty interesting) but in our Southeast Division as well. You know what I mean; I shall say no more.
For this game day's "In Praise of..." segment, I'd like to give a shout-out to the yellow skate laces worn by Ilya Kovalchuk and Slava Kozlov. They's purdy cool. Long may they flourish.
