As much as this week was about the Pens playing some teams from the west.
As they say.
Now it is personal.
With the start of a huge run against division opponents, get ready for that old friendly hate feeling that has been doormat for a while to strike tonight.
The Wild and the AV's really weren't that easy to hate.
You can fully expect to be in a pissed off mood about three minutes after the faceoff tonight.
We all know Brendan Witt is going to do something dumb.
Tonight is actually a big night in New York as well.
It is Al Arbour day. [ Yahoo ]
He signed a one day contract to coach his 1,500 game.
We don't remember much about this guy because in the 80's we were more concerned about the "Land Before Time" than hockey.
But yea read this:
"Arbour joined the club in 1973 and left in 1986, only to return three seasons later for another six-season stint. He replaced Terry Simpson, the only other coach in Islanders history to win a playoff series."
"The highlight of Arbour's return was the Islanders' stunning upset of the two-time defending champion Penguins in the 1993 Patrick Division finals. New York trailed the series 3-2 before coming back and winning Game 7 on David Volek's overtime goal."It is save to say. From the bottom of all our hearts. We hope he gets hit by a puck.
Lines for tonight. [PSI]
Whitney is out.
