Well, well, well! Could tonight's game at the old barn get any BIGGER?!

Not only the very last regular season meeting between the Islanders and Rangers at the old barn on Hempstead Turnpike, but also the return of Kyle Okposo!

Newsday's Art Staple knew this would happen when he tweeted out that he didn't think Okposo, who had been skating with the team, would be ready for tonight's game. He even said he would look foolish when Kyle was inserted in the line-up by Capuano -- just as he is.

But all kidding aside, the return of Okposo is huge, especially in front of the home town crowd. Halak will be in net and other changes will be announced by Capuano later.

Points are important at this point in the season, but points against the Rangers are even more important to two fan bases who live and breathe their team's logo. If you are heading to the Coliseum tonight, you are lucky.

Be safe, be loud, be proud.

11:45 am: Seems Butchie is a little nervous about Kyle coming back so soon, but according to the Isles Twitter feed Okposo says "I'm ready, I'm excited and it's a great game to come back for." Damn Straight it is!!!
