Islanders vs. Avalanche [Game 60 Thread]

"I'm core. Are you core?" - Jim McIsaac

This is the way the Olympic break arrives, not with a bang but a whimper.

Evgeni Nabokov is in net.

Travis Hamonic is back and set to partner with Calvin de Haan. With that, Matt Donovan took the early trip back to Bridgeport.

Meanwhile, Lubomir Visnovsky confirms he "isn't up for" going to Sochi.

P.A. Parenteau, on returning to the Island for the first time:

I’m really grateful for what Snowy and Jack did for me in my first year there. It’s something I’ll never forget. It pretty much put me on the map, I’ll be grateful for. It was two great years, I got to play with really great players and it was an awesome time.

Tavares on Parenteau (same link):

He’s got a great personality; he’s a great guy in the locker room. He’s very upbeat and he’s got a great skill set. He overcame a lot to finally make it in the NHL, so I’m happy to see him doing well. I know he’s looking forward to returning tonight and he’s always been a motivated guy to, so I’m sure he’s going to come out hard.
