"Shootout at the TB Corral," a 13-part PBS Miniseries by Ken Burns.

Hey, a line-up with 10 rookies losing to one of the best teams in the conference in a 13 round shootout? I'll take it and enjoy my Friday. The Islanders return to the Coliseum tomorrow night to face the Devils.

Islanders Stuff:

  • [Note: Charles Wang in "talks" to sell stake thread is over here.]
  • Recaps: LHH | New$day | Islanders | IPB | Raw Charge
  • The Shootout Skinny. More info like this: This was the first shootout in NHL history with 9 goals scored; Tampa Bay becomes the first NHL team to score five times in the shootout.
  • With the imposters in their post trade-deadline hibernation state, the real Bob McKenzie broke news late last night that Charles Wang may be in talks to sell his majority stake in the Islanders. Adjust your drama settings accordingly.
  • In case you missed it, Chris took a look at the Islanders 400 games club and its latest prospective members, Josh Bailey and Kyle Okposo.

  • Dan's Soapbox: ya know, I'd love P.K. Subban, or All Star X, on the Islanders as much as the next guy. But I'm a little concerned about the quickness to trade Ryan Strome already. The kid just got here. I just, I... I strongly disagree. Anyway, this Subban article is from The Checking Line.
