Bits: Bridgeport Won...or Maybe the Islanders Won...Wait, Who Was Goalie?

We're so ready for hockey, we'll take coverage of an instrasquad scrimmage.

I'll be back.
I'll be back.

The New York Islanders and their brethren scrimmaged for fans yesterday. By conventional counting, the mostly Sound Tigers (white) won 5-3. By extra special shootout math, the mostly Isles (blue) won the night 6-5.

Rosters and lines and fuzzy math here. (To be fair, the parents heavily outshot the offspring.) Rick DiPietro and Evgeni Nabokov swapped sides midway through the game, so it was fun watching fans try to figure out who had given up what.



  • The details on Travis Zajac's new contract for ... EIGHT YEARS and $5.75 million. Zajac is 27. He had 44 points on 13 goals in 82 games in 2010-11. Last year, injuries limited him to six points in 15 games.
  • And we have a trade to announce: Matthew Lombardi back to the Coyotes for a conditional pick.

The games that count are so close I can taste the $9 beer...

Parting Thought: Everybody played hahd.
