[Gameday Bits] In the court of the charcoal Kings

The Islanders have no chance at winning this game. Unless they do.

Flying up and over you

Hey, you never know. I mean, if the Kings can host a Larry Murphy bobblehead night with a doll that doesn't look anything at all like Larry Murphy, anything is possible.

FIG Picks for tonight's game go here.

Islanders stuff:

  • In case you missed it in the comments yesterday, Arthur Staple's "Is it time the Islanders rebuild again" was less provocative than the title betrays. He's suggesting they rid themselves of some unproductive players - and end the Thomas Vanek gambit - and call up some kids. But it lit the fanbase on fire for a little while on Friday. Not that it takes much.
  • Also causing a stir, our own Chris McNally on which Islanders need to get gone.
  • Could Peter Laviolette be the man to turn the Islanders around? Thanks to one vague, passive aggressive collection of 140 characters, apparently the answer is "maybe." [Puck Daddy]
  • The Islanders need an attitude adjustment more than anything else. [Eyes on Isles]
  • Ryan Strome had a goal and two assists in Bridgeports' 5-3 win over Utica on Friday and now leads the AHL in scoring. The drums, they beat louder and louder... [BST]
  • Jay Pandolfo just announced his retirement yesterday. Seriously. [CSN New England]
  • Flying in to attend the Stadium Series' game in the Bronx? Here are some hotel packages, unless you're crashing on a bud's couch.
  • And commenter jbotte is organizing a meet-up for the December 14th game at the Coliseum. Go and be merry.
