    Game 13: Bruins at Islanders gameday thread

    By Amalie Benjamin, Globe Staff

    UNIONDALE, N.Y. – Welcome to the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, where the Bruins will take on the Islanders tonight. The plan for the Bruins is to get off to a better start than they have of late. That will be helped by the fact that they aren't the ones coming off back-to-back games. That would be the Islanders, who played in Ottawa last night and landed back in New York at 1 a.m.

    Johnny Boychuk didn't make the trip to New York, which means that Matt Bartkowski will be back in the lineup. He hasn't played since Oct. 17 when the Bruins took on the Panthers and Boychuk was injured.

    Game time: 7 p.m. TV/Radio: NESN/98.5 The Sports Hub Records: Bruins 8-4-0, Islanders 5-5-3

    Projected lineups:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
    Reilly Smith-Patrice Bergeron-Brad Marchand
    Chris Kelly-Ryan Spooner-Carl Soderberg
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Dougie Hamilton
    Matt Bartkowski-Dennis Seidenberg
    Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

    Chad Johnson
    Tuukka Rask

    Notes: Tonight's game marks the first time the Bruins will see the Islanders with new acquisition Thomas Vanek. The Islanders acquired Vanek from Buffalo for Matt Moulson and draft picks on Oct. 26. ... New York played in Ottawa last night. Only a few players skated this morning at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. ... The Bruins have a three-game winning streak on Long Island, though the Islanders beat the B's the last time the teams met. ... All but two of the Islanders' 13 games this season have been decided by one goal."

    Johnny Boychuk doesn't make trip to Long Island, but remains "day-to-day"

    Usually just check in to see what people are saying about the Bruins but this small amount of comments amazes me  What is happening Did everyone go out tonight?

    Cant watch the game but looks like another slow start based on the box score/stats sheet.

    I wonder ifan base is shrinking, or getting old, or is it that they are not flashy or high scoring

    Better chances belonged to NYI... Bruins still guilty of the slow start.

    Johnson looks really poised and square, I'm impressed.  How about a goalie chime in and give an assessment.

    Yeah it looks like teams really want to take it to the B's at the start.  B's look like they want to play too much of a finesse games which probably isn't what they're best at.  Skate, forecheck and hit boys, let's go.

    Bruins are going to lose this if they don't wake up soon... very low energy game (again.)

    Marchand is snakebit... not the same player we know

    K the Bruins are awake now. Great pressure from the 2nd line.

    the score doesn't accurately reflect how bad the Bruins are playing... losing every battle

    this is a comedy of errors... Bruins finally get something going and then give up the odd man rush (to Vanek no less!)

    Crappy 2nd period, hope CJ rips into them and they come out flying in the 3rd.  They're losing every puck battle and the Isles are skating circles around them.

    NYI are not a great defensive team and they started their back-up goalie... and on top of that they also played last night in Ottawa and didn't get back in town until 1am!

    Yet, the Bruins are losing races for pucks and battles along the boards and turning the puck over. This is not the same team from even a few weeks ago. What happened?

    Another Saturday night yuk-fest. Way too many odd man rushes. Still 1 period to redeem themselves. CJ has to be scratching his head lately. Earth to B's -- there are no gimmies in this league any more.

    2 goals in 20 minutes almost seems like too much to ask
