Islanders News: Jaroslav Halak, Scott Pellerin, Brent Thompson

Patrick McDermott

Some this and that to read about the Isles, the playoffs, and other teams on the outside.

The playoffs continued their delightful madness last night. Today you have Montreal-Boston Game 2 at mid-day, then the first game of the SoCal series tonight.

Islanders stuff

  • The Islanders let Scott Pellerin go and replaced him in Bridgeport with Brent Thompson, particularly for his development of young defense. [Fornabaio | Soundin' Off | LHH]
  • Jaroslav Halak: Can they keep him? [IPB] Is he the answer? [Post] What will he cost? [LHH]

Playoffs and stuff

  • The Smurfs won in overtime in Pittsburgh. Poor Arthur Staple has to cover it, but he has a nice piece on the Rangers' approach to Crosby and the gang. [Newsday]
  • They scored twice in OT, Campoli-style. Fancy stats here. You can still leave your picks for that series in our LHH poll here.
  • With the game tied 2-2 in the third, Minnesota lost 5-2 (one ENG), and Mike Yeo was disappointed. [Star-Tribune] Here are the fancy stats.
  • The Hawks use their own advanced stats, but they're not gonna talk about it. Or goaltending. [Sun Times | Deadspin]
  • On P.K. Subban under pressure, and racism. [Culture of Hockey]
  • Some great stuff in post-mortem of George McPhee. [Dump n Chase] Excerpted from that: He warned Leonsis against acquiring Jagr back in the day, as Jagr was in a bad place. "The good news is we didn't give them anything." Boom. [Post]
