Game #35 - vs New York Islanders

New York Islanders (15-15-2, 32 pts) at Pittsburgh Penguins (17-15-2, 36 pts)

The Pens are coming off of a road win in Boston where they were fortunate to escape with two points. The Islanders have been anything but fortunate lately.

The Isles' high water mark for the season was when they beat Ottawa on 11-28 to go to 13-8-1. Since that time, they're 2-7-1. They're still struggling to put pucks in the net. They haven't notched more than two power play goals in a game since October. They've allowed 34+ shots in five of their past six games.

All of this goes to say that the Pens should win this game. They need to win this game. They have to get some victories within the Atlantic division.

The next 7 games are critical for the Pens. They play six at home (the one that's not is the New Years Day game against the Sabres) against some weaker competition (including Washington and Florida). Time to earn some points!

Let's Go Pens!

Dear Mr,

I'm an intern with startup widget 1000 and I created a news widget for New York Islanders News.
It's updated every hour with New York Islanders headlines from several different sports websites like ESPN, FOX Yahoo,etc. (Take a look:

Can we add New York Islanders blog to the widget,too? That means that every time you post to your blog the headline of the post will show up on the widget and link directly to your post.
Anyone who puts this widget on their start page or on their website will see your New York Islanders posts too. It's a powerful and free way to publicize your site.

Finally, would you add your New York Islanders News Widget to your site so that others can see it?
Everyone who grabs the widget will automatically link to you so it's great for your search engine rankings. Plus, it shows a lot of stories about New York Islanders and since it's updated every hour it is fresh and will make your site even more appealing than it already is.

What do you think?
