New, comments

Whoa. Games. With an 's.'

Pick me!
Pick me!

Busy two days for the Islanders. Tonight they host the Bruins in Brooklyn, then zip off to St. Louis to face the Blues tomorrow night.

FIG picks for tonight may be registered here.

Islanders linkage

  • A couple of throwaway lines from the Islanders' win on Tuesday got me to thinking. [LHH]
  • Anders Lee would make a great pick-up for your fantasy team (if you haven't picked him up already). [TSS]
  • Goalie Christopher Gibson is back for Bridgeport. And Parker Milner is back to Missouri. [CT Post]
  • The Sound Tigers ready for their road trip. [Soundin' Off]
  • Mathew Barzal learned much in his time with the Islanders this summer: "I've seen what it takes to be a pro. They're on another level. The top players, the guys like John Tavares, are the hardest working guys." [The Province]
  • A decorated veteran and one of the subjects of the movie Lone Survivor will be honored at a Long Island Bobcats game at Twin Rinks. [NY Post]
  • Islanders prospect Devon Toews' circus goal against Maine made SportsCenter's Top 10 plays. [Quinnipiac]

Other stuff

  • It's 0-8-0 for John Tortorella's Blue Jackets. [Dispatch]
  • Dan Girardi and Andrew MacDonald have a lot in common. So why is one a sad story and the other a role model? [TSN.ca]
  • Unguided missile Zac Rinaldo was not suspended for his hit on Sean Couturier the other night [SCoc] and Kerry Fraser doesn't agree with the call [TSN.ca]
  • David Leggio will be knocking nets off in Germany. [Red Bull Muenchen]
  • Evander Kane has a little fun with the Damien Cox, who threw some shade Kane's way earlier this week. [DBTB]
  • Canadians now make up less than 50% of the NHL for the first time. No one tell Don Cherry. [TSN.ca]
  • The rewards of fighting various Philadelphia Flyers. You leave Mark Streit out of this, you animals! [BSH]
  • A group of Flames dress as The Mighty Avengers to visit a kids hospital. Love the thought, but I take exception to Canadian Sam Bennett playing Captain America. Where was New Jersey's Johnny Gaudreau? Probably captured by Baron Zemo. [M&G]
