After yesterday's madness, it doesn't get any easier for the Islanders, who host the Penguins on Tuesday, the Maples Leafs in Toronto the next night and then the Bruins in a matinee on Saturday. Hang on.

- Kenny Jonsson, who we reported a few months ago was diagnosed with Crohns Disease, is finally back on his feet and at the rink watching his son Axel play again. He also talked to Expressen about the Islanders-Rangers rivalry ahead of yesterday's "derby." (via Google Translate)
- In my day, the Islanders were always little brother. We had much lower budgets and fewer fans in the stadiums, except during derbies. Therefore beat is always a little higher to win at derby matches.
But according Jönsson does not matter how many times the Islanders beat the Rangers.In "The Big Apple" is a position of power that will never be shaken.
- Islanders will always be the little brother of the Rangers, even if you go and win a Stanley Cup. In North America, there will always be so, but out on Long Island is another atmosphere where you hold Islanders higher than the Rangers. But looking at it in general will always beat Rangers higher than the Islanders.
