The Islanders had everything going against them yesterday - matinee game, against the Blue Jackets (who they never play well against), without Lubomir Visnovsky and, on yeah, in the cursed black jersey. So much for omens.

Islanders news:

Long weekend:

  • Yesterday's NHL scores. If you're an Eastern Conference team that wants to make the playoffs, you might want to start winning games.
  • The folks at PPP talk about "The James Reimer Situation," which is obviously a big one for the Maple Leafs.
  • The Islanders aren't the only team who could use Reimer next year. How about the Flames? [Matchsticks and Gasoline]
  • How do goalies age? Some better than others. [Hockey Graphs]
  • Smart guy Travis Yost on what teams are trending the right way possession-wise. [Sens Extra]
  • Remember when Canadian teams were good at hockey?. [Puck Daddy]
  • Oilers fans sure do. Incoming! Duck! [PHT]
  • Please don't throw jerseys on the ice. Also, seriously, DON'T BANG ON THE DAMN GLASS YOU ANIMALS. [The Score]
  • Erik Karlsson has had a difficult season, both professionally and personally. [6th Sens]
  • Predators color analyst, raconteur, hockey lifer and original Islander Terry Crisp talks about... all kinds of stuff. [The Tennessean]
  • When you have a minute, be sure to stop on by Defending Big D for details on a fundraiser inspired by the heart ailments of Stars forward Rich Peverley.

The geniuses at Bloge Salming ballad-ize the plight of Reimer and his rise and fall into blue and white insanity.
