[Bits] Cold Snaps, Hot Streaks & Warm Fuzzies

DION SQUISH!! - Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Report: Loss to Islanders causes team to search souls, re-examine existence.

Olympic teams are announced. Islanders won back-to-backs and have two days off. Don Cherry only works weekends. Enjoy the next couple of days of (possible) quiet. Try not to get frostbite.

  • Recaps: LHH | New$day | Our man Quinn at IPB | Islanders | PPP | Globe and Mail
  • The Skinny from Eric Hornick.
  • Evgeni Nabokov's injury is believed to be a quad strain and not as serious as originally thought. Could still miss two weeks. [New$day]
  • Arthur Staple on what goalies could be available to the Islanders. [New$day]
  • When you watch the Islanders take the ice at Barclays Center, you'll be able to get a haircut at the same time. Your move, Tattoo Lou. [NY Mag]
  • I hope you didn't order that Philip-Michael Devos Sound Tigers jersey. The team released him from his PTO yesterday.

"Hey, mom. Yeah. I'm on the Olympic team. Is dad there?"
