The Islanders were off yesterday, but even an off day in the NHL means going to work: This time it was Casino Night, to benefit the Islanders Children's Foundation, and the photos were awesome as usual.

Islanders Reads
  • With the off day, Newsday got an update on Ryan Pulock's progress, particularly since Calvin de Haan's injury raises the possibility of at least a short-term change. Brent Thompson: "in juniors, it was offense, offense, offense for him. He’s got that weapon of a shot and he could help the [Islanders’] power play right now, but if he’s not good enough in his own end, no one will ever see that shot." [Newsday]
  • Speaking of that shot, it took a teammate (Andrew Rowe) out of the game as Pulock's Sound Tigers lost another (extra time) one they felt they should've won. Still points in 10 straight though. [CT Post | Soundin' Off]
