So the Islanders get back to it tonight, chasing that elusive and lofty "win at least half our games maybe" threshold. Some reads and such:

Islanders & The Farm
  • As you will probably see tonight, Valeri Nichushkin is a bit of a beast. Here's a 1-on-1 with him. [Voice of Russia]
  • The Stars were walloped by the Red Wings though. [Defending Big D]
  • Ben Bishop left the game with an injury last night. [NHL]
  • Jeez, everything's going right for Anaheim. They scored with 1.3 seconds left in OT. [NHL Video]
  • WJC: Canada didn't medal, thus there must be something wrong with Canada. [Buzzing the Net]
  • Reviewing the final episode of 24/7. [Puck Daddy]
  • Over at Islanders West, er, Edmonton, things are looking dire. Again. [Copper & Blue]
  • That said, Ryan Smyth is not the problem.
Late Addition

Our own EDM (that's Eric David Morris, not Edmonton) delves deep into concussions at Undisclosed Injury, letting you know what you should expect the next time your star defenseman leaves the game with a head injury.
