Good morning folks. I imagine you're brimming after last night's third period comeback at the Garden over the Rangers. I certainly am. In a manner of speaking!

The Islanders now sit 2 points behind the Bruins for the second wild card spot with a game in hand. We also host them on Saturday night, after visiting the Penguins on Friday night.

  • Only one of Elliotte Friedman's 30 Thoughts is Islander-related: it expounds on Nick Kypreos's report that they may be extending their lease at Barclays Center.
  • This article speculates as to who might be hot after Ben Bishop this summer (spoiler: they believe us to be one of them). [SBN]
  • The trade deadline changed some things up in the latest SBN mock draft for 2017, which includes presumed #1 pick Nolan Patrick not going #1.
  • The NHL doesn't appear to be going to the Olympics - let's find out why. [Sportsnet]
  • The Big Boy himself, Pierre LeBrun, speaks to Duncan Keith regarding the Blackhawks quest for another Stanley Cup. [TSN]
