[Bits] Penguin Vortex blankets Long Island

Too much of this, thank you very much - Bruce Bennett

One of these days, Alice...

The flightless fowl did their business and fled the coop. Next up, matinee Saturday versus St. Louis (or, what we call, "The Dom Bowl.").

Islanders notes:


Bed, bath and beyond the Islanders:

  • Last night's NHL scores. Beware the Blue Jackets, winners of eight (8!) straight games. And the Leafs got lit up in Dallas like Leon Lett.
  • While beating on the Leafs, the Stars in-house crew had some fun with celebrity Toronto fans. Leafs Twitter did not appreciate the jokes. [SB Nation]
  • Behind the scenes of the behind the scenes NHL Revealed series. [NHL.com]
  • Ottawa rookie defenseman Cody Ceci is good. [Silver Seven]
  • But teammate Mark Methot is a healthy scratch. And he's not happy. [Sens Extra]
  • Has Paul Maurice actually fixed the Winnipeg Jets? Tyler Dellow debunks. [Sportsnet]
  • Michel Therrien has broken the Canadiens about as much as he broke the Penguins apparently. [Eyes on the Prize]
  • Eric T on predicting a player's scoring rate using (or not using) previous seasons. [Outnumbered]
  • For smaller nations not expected to medal, playing at the Olympics is still fun. [Globe n' Mail]
  • Down Goes Brown on the endless, unnecessary glut of upcoming outdoor games. [Grantland]
  • Pro tip for goalies: don't stop to talk to the crowd until the game is actually over. [Puck Daddy]
  • And Harrison Mooney's latest song parody, "Kiss from a Lowe" is the best use of Seal to lampoon the Edmonton Oilers you've ever seen.
