New, comments

Also, a minor league line brawl and goalie fight that leaves a lot to be desired.

NHL: Los Angeles Kings at New York Islanders
I am a fan of these guys.

Game action resumes again tomorrow night when the Islanders host the Red Wings in Brook-a-leen. Today, we rest.

Islanders News

  • Calvin de Haan was in a ton of pain after setting up the rush that became the game-winner and there was unfortunately no update on his condition yet.
  • Old friend Alexei Yashin sat down for an extended interview with Christine Simpson before playing in the Senators’ alumni game. [Sportsnet]
  • Josh Ho-Sang didn’t play for the Sound Tigers last night in their overtime loss to Lehigh Valley. However, it would have been his fifth game in five nights, so it’s understandable - Michael Fornabaio said it’s even rare for a player to play four in four nights, as Ho-Sang did.

  • David Quenneville scored Medicine Hat’s first goal in their shootout win heading into a ten-day break. [Medicine Hat News]

Around the League

  • Last night’s NHL scores. None of the games were close, nor did they involve the Metro Division.
  • Speaking of the Metro, eight points separate the top team and the bottom team in the division - it was even closer going into Saturday - in this edition of the Weekly Metro Division Snapshot. [AATJ]
  • The case for and against trading Tyler Johnson this offseason. Steve Yzerman may have a decision to make. [Raw Charge]
  • The Providence Bruins and Hershey Bears got involved in a line brawl the other night, including the worst goalie fight anyone has ever laid eyes on. [SCCC]
