Yes but $5 million? I can't get behind that. - Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Today would be a good day to not do the whole "concede an early lead" thing.

The New York Islanders face the Pittsburgh Penguins on NBC Sports tonight. Appropriate that the network's "NHL Revealed" show featured a heavy dose of the Islanders last night.

Did you catch it? Lots of love for John Tavares and Kyle Okposo. We discuss some of the NHL Revealed highlights over here.

The Reads around Here

From Elias, on the latest comeback win, at the Garden:

"It was the sixth time since December 29 that the Islanders won a game in which they trailed by two goals or more, and five of those six wins were recorded in regulation time. No other NHL team has posted more than two two-goal comeback wins over the past 24 days."
