A little experience can't hurt

With Radek Martinek (415 games) and Milan Jurcina (329) returning to the line-up
tonight, Isles are adding two defensemen who each have played more NHL games
than any of the six who played on Monday in Nashville:

In fact, their total of 744 NHL games nearly equals the sextet's total of 796.

Gervais 293
Wiseniewski 280
Hillen 127
MacDonald 62
Resse 26
Hamonic 8

Jurcina has missed 18 games; the Isles were 1-14-3 in those 18.
