Five out of five hockey reporters agree: John Tavares is a beast. Also: Nabby continues to entertain.
About last night: Recaps from Newsday (talk of Hedberg) | Post: Tavares was "mesmerizing" | Times: Tavares, leader | Daily News: lots of hats | Star-Ledger: DeBoer says it wasn't that bad | Also, Tallinder on that penalty shot call | The Record also has DeBoer saying discipline wasn't the issue. | Eric Hornick's Skinny: The Isles have failed on 16 of their last 17 home penalty shots.
- And the full highlights were in our game recap and all that, but if you want to relive the three goals in a flash that change the game last night, here you go.
- Pissed about MSG bumping the Isles feed last night for triple OT basketball? Kevin at IPB has an explanation of the how and why.
- The Times does its tribute to the Coliseum, with Tom Renney absolutely waxing about the old barn.
- Extensions and such: Staple has an update in Newsday that says the Isles and Mark Streit have at least discussed an extension, that it's wait-and-see with Evgeni Nabokov and Lubomir Visnovsky, and Marty Reasoner is indeed being shopped. In related news, Casey Cizikas was 15-4 on faceoffs last night.
- Bridgeport: The Sound Tigers were swept in a home-and-home with Providence, and they felt jobbed by the officials last night. Scott Pellerin didn't hold back.
