Peepin' Foes: New York Islanders

Rangers vs. Isles tonight at the Garden, need I say more? Good, because I am quite busy and this is going to be short.

Where We Are: Ugh, no comment.

Where They Are: The Islanders followed up a five game losing streak with a good 3-2 shootout win over the sinking Penguins on Monday afternoon.

Who To Watch For: Sean Bergenheim has three assists in his last two games and is a tough little kid. Overhyped Okposo has one goal in his last six games, but if he was a Ranger that would actually be pretty good. And I always keep an eye on Richard Park, who is quite dangerous - especially on the penalty kill.

What To Watch For: Actually, it is what to listen for - hear how the Garden faithful jump all over the Blueshirts at the first sign of adversity tonight. Too many bad results of late and a visit by the hard-working rival Isles is a recipe for disaster.

What We'll (Hopefully) See: A win. Glen Sather's firing. Actual appropriate 'Potvin Sucks' chants.
