Wednesday’s tune up is an important one for the Islanders and Rangers. Both are heading into best-of-five Stanley Cup Qualifier series beginning this weekend, so perfecting every little detail will be important.
“You can do as many intra-squad scrimmages as you want, and the intensity does get up, we had some heated moments in ours for sure,” said Islanders forward Jordan Eberle. “But at the same time, you’re not finishing checks 100-percent, you get the puck in the slot and sometimes you double check it because you don’t want to hit your teammates. So, it will be nice to get out there against a different opponent and definitely ramp it up.”
Neither team has announced their starting goalie for Game 1 of their respective series. David Quinn and Barry Trotz were using training camps to help make that decision.
