Come on, help us out. We can't read everything for you.

At least he doesn't only hit the John Scotts of the world.

The Islanders are back at it tonight when they host the Edmonton Oilers, a better opponent than Tuesday night but hopefully a road-weary one. Some various items to read while warming up your angst:

  • Cal Clutterbuck on getting his legs back, and why he hits a lot. [Newsday]
  • The Islanders coughed up a should-be regulation win the other night. So the official site focused on how they stuck up for each other 'n stuff.
  • Jack Capuano: “I thought we played a good game [...] It was a little wide open for me, but the things and details we discussed with our guys this week, I think they did well.” Despite the disappointing ending and killer mistake by Brian Strait, Capuano is probably right.
  • Chris Bruton is nursing an injury, so Bridgeport recalled Nick Larson from ECHL Stockton and assigned defensemen Mike Dalhuisen and Mike Keenan there. [BST] Fornabaio quotes Scott Pellerin explaining the light Bridgeport schedule means the two D-men need to get some work in California.
  • Meanwhile, Ryan Strome remains patient. [BST]
  • He needs to be, given how bad the Bridgeport power play has been. [CT Post]
  • The Spano film is coming, the Spano film is coming! [IPB with the trailer]
  • Justin Bourne ranks the top 10 best skaters in the NHL, sponsored by some kind of car. You might be bummed that Grabner is only second (so, better than a Lexus?), but they're all flat-out burners.
  • You can never have enough Jiggs McDonald. [Dump and Chase Podcast]
