[Bits] Islanders Pounce on Preds, GM's Talk Changes & As The Oilers Turn

Not Phil Housley - Eagle Eye Keith Quinn

Recaps of the Islanders' win over Nashville, the GMs meeting in Toronto and the Oilers' latest headaches.

The Islanders' four-game losing streak is no more. Use this hump day to take a breath.

Islanders Stuff:

  • Arthur Staple calls the game a "must win" which is true for both the Islanders and his Twitter timeline. John Tavares says his hip was sore after a slide into the boards, but he expects to be fine. [New$day]
  • John Jeansonne on the Islanders' innovative penalty-killing strategy: don't take penalties. [New$day again]
  • The Islanders recap chronicles a good team win that actually was one. [Islanders]
  • NEW! Eric Hornick with The Skinny on last night. [Hornick]
  • Dirk Hoag's recap at On the Forecheck is short and to the point. Despite the offensive outburst, the Predators' slump continues. And their next game is in Pittsburgh. Good luck, Perds. [OTF]
  • Touching story on Isles prospect playing with ECHL Stockton: "Mike Dalhuisen lost his mother to cancer when he was a teenager, but she left him with a lifetime of lessons about dealing with adversity, living his life and giving back to others."
  • Ticket information and logos for the Stadium Series games. [NHL]
  • Recaps, news and stats from the Sound Tigers' weekend. [BST]
  • Guess who's back:
  • Mike Milbury and a host of other sports notables respond to fan letters. Mad Mike's letter is benign, but his penmanship is superb. [Deadspin]

Weirdness from around the NHL:

Who's happy? I'm happy. You're happy. And this South African hockey player in the Norwegian League sure as shit is happy, too. Let's dance.
