I've got a bad feeling about this.
On paper, this should be a cakewalk. We saw how well that whole "paper" thing worked out back on October 16th, when these Isles stomped the Avs 5-2. Not long after that, the Islanders reeled off 20 losses in 21 games. So, easy peasy today, right? Well, the boys from Long Island have won 6 of their last 8. Like I said, I'm a little worried.
Whether you watch the Avalanche feed or the Islanders feed, expect about 18 different montages and graphics to remind you that THE TOP TWO FORWARDS FROM THE 2009 DRAFT ARE PLAYING IN THIS GAME. Oh, AND THEY EACH ARE LEADING THEIR TEAMS IN SCORING (although Tavares would be just 5th in scoring on the Avs). They are SUPER SOPHOMORES indeed.
Go Avs. Please prove me wrong. k thnx.
