TGIF

After a scrambling shootout win over the Lightning, the Islanders head to Philly for a Saturday nigh tilt against the Flyers. I recommend a light workout and a lot of relaxing today.

Islanders news:

Around the NHL:

  • Last night's NHL scores. Habs win in OT on a PK Subban goal and the Devils lose their eighth straight shootout this season. They're 0 for their last 12 shootouts going back to last season. Praise be to Frans.
  • Evander Kane is on IR with a cut hand [Associated Press] and Sheldon Souray will have wrist surgery, ending his season before it even got started. [Sportsnet]
  • Pierre LeBrun with a bushel of trade rumors. Nothing Islanders-related, but some targets in there for sure. [ESPN]
  • Down Goes Brown on the NHL Loser Point and how to eradicate it. [Grantland]
  • And Raw Charge's John Fontana has some ideas to simplify the NHL's points system as well.
  • Longtime NHL forward Steve Begin has retired. [PHT]
  • A recap of Wednesday night's Team Orr versus Team Cherry Top Prospects Game. [Yahoo.ca]
  • I'll try to stop posting Oilers links for a while, because I feel like I'm piling on. But they are fascinating for a few reasons. At the SBN Mothership, Adam Gretz talks about why a goalie like UFA-to-be Devin Dubnyk is always worth a shot, and Jonathan Willis reports that as of this minute, Edmonton's first round pick is the only one they have in the upcoming draft. Ouch.
  • Why hasn't a Canadian team not won the Stanley Cup since Mighty Morphin Power Rangers premiered? It's not the Loonie. It's the loonies running the teams. [Spector's Hockey]
  • At Hockey-Graphs, garik talks about players that score but don't necessarily drive possession and uses a woefully out of date picture of Ilya Kovalchuk.
  • So, like, what does a healthy scratch actually do when healthy scratched? Justin Bourne has the answers. [Backhand Shelf]
