Isles v Bruins Preview

The New York Islanders take on the Boston Bruins at a sold out Webster Bank Arena for the Isles final preseason game. The Islanders are coming off a shoot out loss to the New Jersey Devils last night. Yes you read that correctly. Here was Jack Capuano after the game:

Despite all the drama of who makes the team and the concern over the defense the Islanders preseason record is a respectable 4-1-1.

The Boston Bruins will be playing a Boston/Providence roster with young stars like Torey Krug, David Pastrnack and Malcom Subban.
