Live Blog 1/17/09: Devils vs. Islanders

Islanders Outsider's picture

After a couple of days of headline-making off-ice news, it's time to get back to some hockey. For those who are curious, Yann Danis is back in his #34 jersey and Peter Mannino did make it in time for pre-game warmups.

I'd like to thank Steve and Alex from Hockey Night on Long Island for allowing me to occupy Alex's empty seat on today's show. It was a great episode and Steve did a terrific job running the board with so much news to discuss. As always, the show is archived on the HNLI show site and also available to download as a podcast from iTunes. Further thanks to John Fischer of In Lou We Trust who was an excellent guest and provided an astute preview of tonight's contest from the Devils' perspective.

Back shortly with the opening draw!
