Islanders Reading

  • A modest two consecutive wins for the home team and a desperate opponent coming in has Doug Weight preaching watch out, push harder. [Newsday | Isles]
  • Lineup info from those two links: Jaroslav Halak is in net and the Isles go back to 12 forwards and six D, which means...Scott Mayfield is likely back, Ryan Pulock and Joshua Ho-Sang quite possibly out.
  • One more look in Play of the Day style at Josh Bailey’s stunning goal. [LHH]
  • Dan talks the Isles on Hockey Night in NY podcast. [Hockey Night NY]
  • More on John Ledecky’s treating an original fan’s family he met on the train, and spilling more details on Belmont. [LHH]
  • The Isles’ alumni reunion was pretty cool. I confess I knew who Petr Mika is. [LHH] He and others traveled far and wide for this. [MSG]
  • Never a bad time to talk about the Easter Epic. Pat LaFontaine needed a little oxygen help to get through the four OT Game 7 thriller, Patrick Flatley called it a surreal, euphoric state. [NHL]
  • The NHL’s centennial portrait series continues with Denis Potvin’s portrait. [NHL]
