Flyers – Islanders – Round 2 Pregame thoughts from the press box

By Gary Harding

Do we expect a repeat of last week.

You know it is going to be a bad night when the fans were not allowed into the arena until 6:30 – 30 minutes late.  The fans will be cold and pissed.  That should make for a thrilling atmosphere.

Roloson starts between the pipes tonight.  Need the consistency to be in place tonight.

Things I am looking for tonight from the Isles…..

1.  Hitting galore – take the Flyers off their game – bother them – piss them off

2.  Get the first freaking goal… Establish yourself.

3.  Win faceoffs.  Keep momentum on your side.

4.  Defense – help your goalie – don’t leave him to be a sitting duck.
