Had big plans for the Islanders coming out of the holiday break? Better temper them. John Tavares has a lower body injury and his status is day-to-day, which is exactly as vague as it sounds.

Islanders News:

  • FIG Picks for tonight's game against Jersey are here.
  • Will Sammon pinch hit for Arthur Staple at Newsday yesterday and got to announce the first word on Tavares' injury. Not a lot of information so we'll wait for more. [New$day]
  • Eric Hornick has all the numbers on Tavares' consecutive games played streak, which stretched back to 2010.
  • Stop me if you've heard this before, but Kyle Okposo is making a case for this year's USA Olympic team. [Islanders]
  • Newsday runs down 2013 in New York Sports. The Islanders come in seventh behind, I think, six stories about A-Rod.
