Islanders Bits: Bridgeport hangs on via Ullstrom's pair, Nelson's team lead

The Sound Tigers hang on to thin playoff hopes with six games left, while the Islanders try to hang on to their spot with nine games to go.

The Islanders woke up today still in eighth place by two points after New Jersey lost a shootout to Buffalo Sunday. The Isles are actually tied on points with the Rangers, who are seventh thanks to a game in hand. The Rangers play in Toronto tonight, while the Canes play in Boston.

They got a well-deserved day off Sunday, which you know Evgeni Nabokov was looking forward to if you watched his latest post-game banter with Stan Fischler. Back at it today in prep for Tuesday's "they're all big now" meeting with the Flyers.

UPDATE: Interesting bit at IPB about the Islanders potentially getting out of their lease and moving to Brooklyn one year early (so, for 2014-15).

Lots of stuff from Bridgeport over the weekend:
