Islanders Reads
  • The Isles made some roster moves yesterday, placing Adam Pelech on IR and activating goalie J-F Berube so he could report to Bridgeport for a conditioning stint. [LHH]
  • No Boychuk or Hamonic? Problem. Got Calvin de Haan to fill the minutes? No problem. [Isles]
  • Berube's last visit to Bridgeport didn't last long before the injury, so he's back for more. [CT Post | Soundin' Off]

Beyond the Isle

  • Speaking of: Contrasting Michel Therrien and Bruce Boudreau's response to their teams' epic struggles. [TSN]
  • Postmedia, which owns a ton of papers in Canada (including the Suns), announced major cuts to its team of sportswriters yesterday. I'm sure that'll improve coverage. [Awful Announcing]

  • After making 47 saves in the shootout win over the Isles, Ryan Miller made 46 more in an OT loss in Manhattan. [Nucks Misconduct]
  • The Flyers lost in the last, dying seconds of regulation after an icing. Ouch. [BSH]
