My entrails like details / Left and forgotten
My saddle like a battle / Lost in the past
When they said skidattle / I came home fast
Came home alive
But not entirely well --
Most folks couldn’t tell...

The Islanders have five regulation wins in 2010. Every one except the Jan. 6 squeaker in Denver has come on home ice. The Flyers aren't kind, the road isn't kind -- hell, NHL hockey games have not been kind to the Islanders lately.
Here's hoping they come home alive.
