Sunday morning, some papers to read.

Islanders Reads
  • Ryan Strome admits the World Cup isn't much on his radar, and Jaroslav Halak admits it's a little harder to practice when there are three goalies in the fold. [Newsday]
  • Jordin Tootoo will pay no price for his hit from behind on Johnny Boychuk. [Pro Hockey Talk]
  • Both men were talking after the game though, so it's cool, it's cool. []
  • Today is Anders Lee bobblehead day in Bridgeport. [BST]
  • The Sound Tigers, missing suspended Scott Mayfield, won 5-4 in a shootout with returnee Jesse Graham among the scorers, extending their points streak to 11 games. [CT Post] The officiating was...unsound. [Soundin' Off]
  • Anthony Beauvillier had a goal and assist in Shawinigan's 4-1 win over the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (Noir). [Kelowna Daily Courier]
  • Eamon McAdam made some key saves in Penn State's 6-1 thrashing of An Ohio State. [Daily Collegian]
  • The Islanders' next opponent is 3-0 under its new, passionate coach. [Puck Daddy]
Beyond the Island
  • For the latest outdoor game, the league had an alumni match between former Chicago Blackhawks and former Minnesota North Stars or Wild (Richard Park was there!) players. They enjoyed their entrance. [NHL]
  • The game was a hit, including a "fight" between Denis Savard and Dino. [Puck Daddy]
  • Basically, without the 1967 NHL expansion none of us would know the names of Bill Torrey, Scotty Bowman, Terry Crisp and so many others. [Globe & Mail] (Remember: That expansion included Oakland and L.A., and later they added Atlanta, but all SunBelt expansion issues are Gary Bettman's fault.)
  • In which Larry Brooks laughably speculates that Canadiens players might hate P.K. Subban more than they hate their coach. [Post]
  • Jaromir Jagr has now passed Brett Hull for the 3rd-most goals in NHL history. And if he hadn't taken a KHL detour... [SB Nation]
  • The Daniel Paille experiment is already over in New York. [Daily News]
  • Ryan Johansen isn't looking for a fight, okay? [SB Nation]
