Why such an early start for a Saturday? It’s a two sport doubleheader day in the Capital District, as Siena college basketball is slated for a 7 PM tip off later today; the Sound Tigers have won 5 in a row and 9 out of their last 10, creating a .045 point lead over Hershey for the fourth Atlantic playoff spot; goaltender Jaroslav Halak, sent down by the Islanders on December 31st, has won his last 11 starts; Nick Lappin extended his point streak to 9 games with a goal and an assist Friday night; last night’s 4-0 shutout over Wilkes-Barre marked the first whitewash of the season for Devils goaltending; at press time, it was uncertain if a roster move was forthcoming with Sergey Kalinin on waivers.
