Islanders Bits: In which Matt Moulson feels Leafs fans' pain

"Gosh, they're booing like we used to boo Tom Kurvers."

Well that was a fun night. An eventually comfortable win for the Islanders in a full three-period effort. Plenty of coverage:

Also in the Skinny:

John Tavares has 73 points (31-42-73) on 168 Islander goals this season (43.5%). Zigmund Palffy (41.0% in 1997-98) is the only Islander to record points on over 40% of the team's goals in a complete season.

Meanwhile, plenty of coverage from the Toronto end, because Toronto press relish nothing more than carving up a loser:

Knives Out for Leafs

Funniest (but sad) quote of the night, from Matt Moulson in the CP:

"It reminded me of when I was a kid going to Leafs games," said Moulson, who grew up in the city. "I was one of those fans in the stands booing when they were losing."

Enjoying John Tavares

Enjoy.

Finally, if you missed it yesterday: Anders Lee will stay at Notre Dame for his junior year, John Persson is joining Bridgeport on an ATO with his junior season (and career) over, and the Islanders acquired a Russian defenseman from the Bruins pipeline.

More details on some of that from Michael Fornabaio, as well as Micheal Haley receiving a three-game suspension for that post-penalty box fighting incident.
