Isles in Atlanta

The Isles get back to work on a two day road trip. I'm thinking the weather is a little better in Atlanta than here, but there may not be any guarantees for Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Oh, and there is snow AGAIN on the horizon for their home game on Saturday. At this rate, I think even Travis Hamonic might be done with the winter weather we've had this year.

While I am guessing it will be Rick DiPietro in net tonight, there has been no official announcement yet and no UNOfficial announcement made on @KevinPoulin60's Twitter feed. (And you'll never see another one.)

All eyes will be on the bench to see if Ty Wishart will crack the line-up just so Jack can see what he can do. There are plenty of articles and information on this big kid around the net. He had a lot of potential when he was drafted. Perhaps, as with others, he just needs the right place to play in order to succeed. It could happen.

I'm also going to throw this out there, just because: With the weight of his new deal off his mind, look for Matt Moulson to regain his scoring touch.

More as it hits the wire, but other thoughts here at Hockeybuzz.com.
