  • It's Islanders versus Islander as Brock Nelson and Anders Lee lead the US against Nikolay Kulemin and Russia tomorrow afternoon at 1:15. Kulemin had assists on two Evgeni Malkin goals in a 5-3 win over Sweden on Thursday. [Soundin' Off | Islanders]
  • A garden will be planted on Barclays Center's green roof. Let the kvetching commence. [CBS NY]
  • The Islanders will sell you melted ice from the Coliseum for $20 a bottle. If that sounds like an old joke, it's because it is. I demand my free vial. [Newsday | Islanders have the info. Supplies are limited so act fast. Or don't.]

Friday getaway
