Carl Soderberg is concussed. Kevan Miller and Nick Johnson are back in the lineup. It's the last game of 2013. The Islanders are worse than every team in the NHL except Edmonton and the Sabres, and the Sabres only need one more win to equalize that. Remember when we Piled on the Isle? Remember when the Islanders were supposed to be sort of decent this year? Oh how things change.
Happy New Year, folks!
