Also in the Skinny:

John Tavares has 73 points (31-42-73) on 168 Islander goals this season (43.5%). Zigmund Palffy (41.0% in 1997-98) is the only Islander to record points on over 40% of the team's goals in a complete season.

Knives Out for Leafs

Funniest (but sad) quote of the night, from Matt Moulson in the CP:

Finally, if you missed it yesterday: Anders Lee will stay at Notre Dame for his junior year, John Persson is joining Bridgeport on an ATO with his junior season (and career) over, and the Islanders acquired a Russian defenseman from the Bruins pipeline.

More details on some of that from Michael Fornabaio, as well as Micheal Haley receiving a three-game suspension for that post-penalty box fighting incident.
