[Bits] Colin McDonald, Josh Bailey and Kyle O'Kposo wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day

No, the beer is supposed to be that color.

Monday off for the Islanders before the Minnesota Wild rumbles into the Coliseum on Tuesday. Narratives? You got 'em!

Islanders stuff:

  • In case you missed it over the weekend, the Islanders signed OHL defenseman Adam Pelech to a three-year contract.
  • Bossy bless Eric Hornick for knowing the most minute of minute trivia, like this mini-Skinny on a record set by Lubomir Visnovsky in the Islanders' win over Buffalo on Saturday.
  • Speaking of the Sabres, Thomas Vanek returned to Buffalo on Sunday with the Canadiens and received a standing ovation from the fans at The Aud First Niagara Center. Before the game, he spoke with every reporter within earshot and talked about his unusual year and his time as an Islander. He felt the leak of his turning down the Islanders offer was, um, counter-productive. But he did reiterate that he greatly enjoyed his time in blue and orange and running with some pretty good linemates.
  • After being abused in back-to-back shutouts on Friday and Saturday, Bridgeport picked up a much-needed win against Adirondack on Sunday. Jeremy Langlois and Andrew Clark each had two goals in the 5-4 victory.
  • Also this weekend, the Sound Tigers released forward Justin Mercier.
  • It's St. Patrick's Day. I wonder if the Islanders ever had any good players named Pat or Patrick. Nah. None come to mind.
