"It’s happening almost everywhere around the league," he said. The quality of ice and the new models of skates are other factors being looked at. "The new skates," Gordon said, "there’s absolutely no give to them at all."

Scott Gordon, responding to Chris Botta about the team's epic injury list this season, which now includes Mark Streit again. Botta said he's heard the same from "dozens" of coaches/players/trainers. Might be of interest to visiting Caps fans, who have seen their share of injuries and bad ice.

During the first period, the Islanders received league permission to use goalies coach Mike Dunham in the event Danis got hurt against the Rangers. Dunham, who retired two years ago, spent part of the game stretching and staying loose but would have needed to sign a professional tryout form before playing.

>> Newsday. Always get a kick out of the emergency goalie conditions. The Isles should look into the Caps' Web guy.

"I'm just sick and tired of hearing how the players association has to get together on this; [that] it's all on the players. There's a lot of people involved. There's the players, there's the referees, and then there's the league. I think everybody has a hand in this game. We all have a responsibility to this game to make it better. It's up to the players to respect each other more. It's getting ridiculous. And the referees enforce things on the ice, and the league will handle it. Hopefully, they will start handing out stiffer penalties." --Bill Guerin I agree. Though Mottau's hit was a clear mistake, it looked like careless rather than malicious intent. The problem this time was the refs didn't call it right. Will the league suspend dare suspend Mottau, or would that "undermine" the refs?
