– The Islanders acquired Thomas Vanek – a two-time 40-goal scorer – from Buffalo on Sunday in exchange for Matt Moulson and a 1st and 2nd round draft pick. Vanek had four goals and five assists in 13 games with Buffalo this season.
– John Tavares has a 10-game point streak (4g, 9a).
– Kyle Okposo has three goals and five assists during a five-game point streak.
– Frans Nielsen leads the team with 15 points (7g, 8a).
– The Islanders have lost three of their last four games.
– The Islanders have the second best power play in the league at 27.8%.
– The Rangers are 7-0-2 in the last nine games against the Islanders.
– It's officially time for the Rangers to start playing with some passion, so I absolutely wouldn't mind seeing a little of this tonight…
…man, how awesome would it be if Talbot pulls a "Cloutier" on Nabakov tonight.
