Here we see two thirds of the three-on-three format.

Been busy with selling my apartment just in time for the All-Star lull in standings action. Anyway, here are the numbers as the All-Star break arrived. Now that we've made it through the downtime of the NHL season and the mid-season festival, tomorrow the serious games begin again!

CBS 1/26/2016 11 8 Knocked off their pace a bit from earlier this season, the Isles are back in third place in the Metro and trail the rival Rangers by three points. Brock Nelson has been a real bright spot with six goals over his last seven games.
ESPN 1/25/2016 10 9 The Islanders had won three of four before Saturday's postponed game with the Flyers. They'll finish with two at home as they try to stay ahead of the Rangers before the All-Star break.
TSN 1/25/2016 11 8 While the focus on slumping superstar scorers has landed mostly on Ryan Getzlaf and Sidney Crosby this season, John Tavares seems to be dodging too much criticism, even though his 33 points in 43 games is his lowest per-game scoring rate (0.77 ppg) since his rookie season.
Fox 1/25/2016 6 7 The Islanders have tallied points in their last four games. They also got a nice little break due to the snowstorm. Maybe it’ll help them a bit.
Average 9.5 8 John Scott!

Sorry. I heard that adding his name in articles automatically boosts the page views, and if any articles on this site need a boost, it's this weekly feature!

Also: I've given up on USA Today. I'll use another site starting next week (likely Sports Illustrated). Onwards.

The Avalanche continue to surprise me. They might be fourth in their division, but I suppose they've done well against other teams in their (strong) division, leading to the higher ranking.

That's all for now. I think I'll leave the John Scott to speak for itself. I'll just kick back and watch the page views roll in. Yep. Any minute now. Any.... minute....

(But seriously...from discarded by his team and unwanted by the league to that weekend, with twins on the way...did anyone's personal power ranking take a bigger leap than John Scott's?)
