Islanders News: Unsweet hosts, Chicago

Well, the Blackhawks are no longer on the schedule.

Well harrumph.
Well harrumph.

The Islanders followed their home opener OT loss with a miserably flat performance in Chicago. So now it's Sunday.

Islanders Reads
  • The Isles, they didn't do so good Saturday night in J-F Berube's NHL debut. [LHH | Newsday | Second City]
  • Win, lose or shootout, the 30-save performance was still a big deal for Berube. [Newsday]
  • However, elsewhere in the pipeline there were good things: Chris Gibson shined in the Sound Tigers opener | Eamon MacAdam and Penn State over Canisius |
  • But let's talk about the early reviews of Barclays, where fans found lots to gripe about. [NYT | ESPN | SI | Business Insider |
  • The Nets are supportive though, maybe. [NBA]
  • John Tavares is the 5th-most important NHLer according to Sportsnet's Most Important Scale. [Sportsnet]
  • Kyle Okposo seems unconcerned about his contract situation. [Newsday]
Beyond All That
  • Hockey history: Brampton plays Team India. [HEOTP]
  • The Hawks still want to improve their D, it seems, so Pokka and Strait(please?) aren't the answer. [Second City]
  • NWHL is streaming: Blueshirt Banter | Today's Slapshot |
  • Dan Boyle was a roadie for Faith No More. Neither is in their prime. [Puck Daddy]
