Tim Wallace has been reclassified from emergency callup to genuine, waiver-danger regular ol' callup. Not bad for 9:37 of work. Micheal Haley is scratched, Al Montoya starts and Michael Grabner is back faster than I can finish this sentence.

Ten years ago the Islanders made the playoffs for the first time in a long time, in what would be four playoff appearances in five seasons. The Hawks also made the playoffs but it was their only appearance in an 11-year stretch.

Everybody hurts. Sometimes.
