New York Islanders (2-2-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (3-2-0) ROOT, NBCSN, TSN, 7:30 pm/et CONSOL Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA It's the New York Islanders. Sorry. If you're reading this post, you have already shown more interest in the Islanders than both Evgeni Nabokov and Lubomir Visnovsky. Hopefully the Pens care more about this game. Otherwise we'll be faced with another Winnipeg. Niskanen is out for 2-to-4 weeks. Brian Strait is an Islander. Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 29, 2012. Penguins lost 5-3. What we said in our recap: Not really gonna go into this game too much. It's Friday, and 11 people will read this. Know Your Enemy: Islanders Hockey Blog What they're saying: No updates since January 16. Apparently we're not the only ones phoning it in. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis Kennedy - Malkin - Neal Cooke - Sutter - Glass Tangradi - Vitale - Adams Orpik - Martin Despres - Letang Engelland /Lovejoy/Bortuzzo Fleury New York Islanders Lines: Moulson - Tavares - Okposo Grabner - Nielsen - Boyes Ullstrom - Aucoin - McDonald Martin - Reasoner - Cizikas MacDonald - Hamonic Strait - Streit Finley - Carkner   Nabokov The Islanders' Strait - Streit combination will almost certainly be the highlight of the night for Steigerwald and Errey. Hopefully they can keep the two names straight. *Groan* Pens lines via Penguins.NHL.com. Islanders lines via Daily Faceoff. Do It. Go Pens.
