[Bits] Coyote Trapped, Reinhart Sits, MacKinnon Learns from Professors Tavares & Crosby

Hey, you two! Knock it off! - Bruce Bennett

Savoring Tuesday's wonky whooping of the Coyotes, sweating the future of Griffin Reinhart, learning from the best and other NHL goings-on.

The Islanders got a big two points last night before their next game, a meeting with the champs at their house on Friday night. Take some time to relax for now.

Last Night's NHL Scores.

Islanders News:

  • Arthur Staple recaps the win over the Coyotes. Jack Capuano keeps things in perspective: "We got some bounces. Let's not kid ourselves." [New$day] More (video) from Capuano in his post-game over in this LHH thread.
  • Staple's update on Cal Clutterbuck's status contains some quick quotes from Coyotes GM and former Islanders bad-trade-maker Don Maloney [$ame Paper]
  • The New York Post's Brett Cyrgalis discusses what the Islanders can do with current healthy-scratch Griffin Reinhart and ratchets up the agida by invoking the name of Nino Niederreiter. I gotta take issue with Cyrgalis here. He conveniently forgets that Ryan Strome spent a few games with the Islanders as a healthy scratch in 2011, went back to junior and was (and is) fine. Dredging up Nino isn't necessary since in the two years between then and now the Islanders circumstances (and finances) have changed dramatically. [NY Post]
  • The Sound Tigers website talks with ALTERNATE captain Aaron Ness. [BST]
  • Sean Leahy of Yahoo! and Puck Daddy fame writes about the Islanders' evolution and adjusted expectations after last season's success. [Puck Daddy]
  • From yesterday: the Islanders re-assigned fan favorite and ink enthusiast Kirill Kabanov to Stockton of the ECHL because... well, it's a long story. [LHH]
  • UPDATE: Eric Hornick's Skinny following last night's game. [Hornick]
