NY Islanders News

Live at the Coliseum – Rangers – Islanders

By Gary Harding

Arrived late, and could not get my computer to work.  The Isles went out like gangbusters and had the early shot advantge, but Prospal scored first – to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead.

As a result – I owed Joe McDonald – from NY Sports Day a quarter (yes – a mesely 25 cents), as I bet my old friend on the first goal.

Montoya has not had a lot of shots to face, but his defense has helped tremendously clean up the garbage in front of the net.

Once again – Grabner is not in the lineup due to the impending birth of his first child. I just wish that she had the labor earlier in the week.

Will report more for the second and third stanzas.
