The Isles have announced that tonight's game will be streamed on the Isles website, beginning at 7pm. Blackout restrictions do apply. (The Bruins are also streaming so fans in the Boston area can catch the game on bruins.com)
Pre-Season Skinny: The game (unofficially) marks the Islanders' first visit to Boston to play the reigning Stanley Cup Champs since their famous 9-7 victory in January 1973.
Tim Thomas is expected in nets for the B's. Rick DiPietro and Anders Nilsson are on the trip for the Isles. DiPietro is one of three Massachusetts natives on the trip; Jay Pandolfo and Mike Mottau will also play for the Isles tonight.
