"It's Dec. 4, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses."
Just thought this was a happy glance for a Friday afternoon:
Sure, games in hand 'n all that. But the joy of rebuild expectations (sorry, don't use that word) is that we can be pleasantly surprised at where the Isles are -- growing, evaluating, maturing -- while the Rangers are shuffling deck chairs and the Flyers are holding closed-door meetings. [UPDATE: And firing coach John Stevens.]
Have a wonderful Friday night, Islanders fans. Fun resumes tomorrow in Tampa Bay.
