Try to make this a relaxing Sunday. Clean out the garage or something.

Islanders news

  • Recaps: LHH | Newsday | NY Post | Daily News | | Islanders | EOTP | NYI Skinny
  • Yes, Ryan Strome was a healthy scratch. No, Jack Capuano doesn't hate him. It was just a day off. [Newsday]
  • Matt Donovan did get into the line-up and his patience was rewarded. [Newsday]
  • When he wasn't stoning the Islanders at every turn, Carey Price was posing for selfies with fans. I find the Habs super enjoyable when they're not playing the Islanders. [Puck Daddy]
  • Staple does the Boychuk Extension thing, focusing on the Islanders uncharacteristically giving out a No Movement Clause. It's a brave new world. [Newsday]
  • Boychuk and the Islanders were a fit from the start. [IPB]
  • The NHL's three leading scorers aren't scoring enough for ol' Brooksie.
  • Nassau Coliseum was built during a time when rosters and back-up goalies were smaller, and putting a TV announcer between the benches made no sense. Now, today's goalies and TV crews have to get creative to watch the games. [NY Times]
  • (en francais) P.A. Parenteau has special memories of the Coliseum. [La Presse]
  • afrosupreme brings up three intriguing graphs of the Islanders season. [FanPost]
  • The Islanders' payroll sets them up nicely for the future. [NHL Numbers]
  • The Sound Tigers have now dropped six in a row after a loss to Lehigh Valley. Bridgeport has one win in its last 17 games. I think. It's hard to keep track. [CT Post | Soundin' Off]
  • Michael Dal Colle (1G, 1A) and the Oshawa Generals set a franchise record for points in a season with a win over Mississauga. [Durham Region]
  • Josh Ho-Sang: "If people want to make me seem like an asshole, go ahead. It’s cool." [Sportsnet]

As the NHL turns

  • The Sharks owner has now chimed in to put both Joe Thornton and Doug Wilson in the corner. [Sportsnet]
  • The Islanders' next opponents, the Chicago Blackhawks, are in a bit of a late-season slump, too (aside from yesterday's 6-2 rout of San Jose). But they hope to get straightened out before the playoffs. [Sports Illustrated]
