A blog by a long time New York Islanders fan who stays true to the fellas wearing orange, white and blue…but thinks the Islanders organization has some shaping up to do.

Preview: Isles vs. Hurricanes 2.6.10 NVMC

This is the final meeting between these two teams for the season. The Islanders lead, 2-1-0, but the Hurricanes have the most recent win- a 4-1 lashing at the RBC Center just last week. They also have a big injury that might harm them tonight.

Cam Ward sustained an upper-body injury (to my understanding) prior to a 4-3 win at Buffalo and went to Raleigh for further evaluation. Chad LaRose, Scott Walker and Tuomo Ruutu are also out, while Erik Cole is questionable. The Islanders would do well to capitalize upon the somewhat decimated 'Canes lineup and try to get something going offensively. And wake up that power play somehow, too.
