Columbus beat Philadelphia last night, which is enjoyable on one level but also officially eliminates the New York Islanders from the playoffs. Oh, you didn't know that hadn't happened yet? Well math is hard, but FanShots are helpful.

Islanders Reads
  • NEW! Arthur Staple guests on Oilers Now with Bob Stauffer to talk Islanders, Josh Bailey, Matt Moulson, Thomas Vanek and all kinds of stuff.
  • If you missed this yesterday, more on Ryan Pulock and Griffin Reinhart facing off as opposing captains in a WHL playoff series. [Edmonton Journal]
  • Kirill Petrov is not walking through that door. Not this year, at least. (Lather. Rinse. Repeat.)
  • The Sound Tigers made some more moves. It's getting hard to keep track, but we're trying.
  • Eric Nystrom is fun in his own right, but yeah we're always going to link his interviews because Bobby inevitably comes up. [Hockey Fights]
  • Remember how early in the week, people noted that prospective buyer Andrew Barroway was once involved with a shareholder lawsuit against Charles Wang (among others) with CA? Well ESPN presents that info with a little more detail, but ultimately reaching the same conclusion: It's irrelevant.

But anyway, if you want more sale scuttlebutt, Brad Dalgarno offers this:
