Islanders Stuff

  • Recaps of a royal flush: LHH | Newsday | NHL.com | Islanders | Jewels from the Crown | NYI Skinny from Eric Hornick
  • (Note: this is from prior to last night's 4-4 PK performance) The Islanders penalty killing is killing them. I mean, not literally. No one's life is in danger. But it is costing them wins. [Newsday]
  • Sad but true: the world isn't ready for David Leggio's innovative 2-on-0 solution and the AHL is changing their rules to prevent anyone else from doing it. [LHH]
  • Shuffling lines for the Sound Tigers. Sebastian Collberg appears, but is not ready for contact. [Soundin' Off]
  • Griffin Reinhart is getting acclimated to the AHL, but has his sights are on the big club. [Soundin' Off]

Around the League

  • Flipped over by a check from Colorado's Jan Hejda, the Maple Leafs Daniel Winnik hit the ice awkwardly and lay motionless on the ice for several minutes. He was stretchered off but is expected to recover. Warning: difficult to watch. [Puck Daddy]
  • Leafs forward Carter Ashton was suspended for 20 games for breaking the league's PED rules. But it's not what you think. Moral of the story: try not to borrow anyone's asthma inhaler. [SB Nation]
  • NHL COO John Collins mentions ads on jerseys very briefly at the end of this Sports Business Journal interview and the hockey world went a little nuts yesterday. Because it would be a shame for corporations to invade our gloriously unsponsored game. I can't even imagine what a hockey game surrounded by advertisements would look like. I also ride a unicorn to work and barf rainbows.
  • Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn are just'a good ol' boys, never meanin' no harm. [ESPN]
  • A pair of junior players have been suspended for sending abusive and repugnant text messages to girls. Langluy from Jewels from the Crown says we should ask more of society, beyond just sports.
  • Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts. On tanks and the coaches asked to watch over them.
  • Speaking of which, here are your Connor McDavid Power Rankings for the week.
  • This 11-year old Japanese kid is better than you will ever be at hockey. Start the tanking now. [Sportsnet]
