[Gameday Bits] Spent the Last Year Rocky Mountain Way

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Islanders are in Denver to see some of the largest and most majestic natural wonders in North America: John Elway's teeth.

I feel like the last time the Islanders played the Avalanche, Jocelyn Thibault was in goal.

FIG picks for tonight's late game can be left here.

  • Kevin at IPB gets to the root of the Andrew MacDonald conundrum and the perception disparity between fans and media.
  • Checking in with former Islander Tommy Salo. [The Checking Line]
  • The Metropolitan Division is a cakewalk, for everyone but the Islanders. [Puck Daddy]

Meanwhile:

No, not the Avalanche, but always worth seeing again: Billy Smith's goal versus Rob Ramage and the Colorado Rockies.
