Another Monday is upon us, unfortunately. Unless you work in a government or bank environment - perhaps, then, you’ve got the day off to make up for Veteran’s Day yesterday, and it’s not such a bad Monday. That being said, it’s still not a great Monday, because the Islanders do not grace our televisions until tomorrow night. As Alex Trebek likes to say, boo hiss.
- Let’s recap the other night against the Panthers, shall we? [LHH | Newsday, which also mentions Mathew Barzal falling short of 100 points in 100 games | Islanders | NYI Skinny | With so much drama in the LBC]
- Adam Pelech had himself a doozy Saturday night, and not in a particularly good way. He’s still adjusting to an expanded role. [Newsday]
- Going into his 100th game, Barzal acknowledged how quickly his first two seasons are going by and is eager to learn more. [Islanders]
- The Sound Tigers topped the Providence Bruins in overtime yesterday 5-4. Jan Kovar (who?) scored for the P-Bruins, while Devon Toews had himself a goal and an assist. Travis St. Denis scored the game-winner with a little help from Toews and Otto Koivula. [Sound Tigers | CT Post | Soundin’ Off]
- The Worcester Railers are spiraling, dropping their 7th straight game against the Maine Mariners. It was apparently a good effort, though. [RailersHC]
The Islanders partnership with the City Parks Foundation of NYC created the opportunity to host free hockey clinics in the city, and Eric Cairns stopped by.
The #Isles partnership with @CPFNYC is all about getting kids excited about being active and engaged in their local parks. What better way to do that than free hockey clinics!?— New York Islanders (@NYIslanders) November 11, 2018

Around the Hockey World
- Last night’s and Saturday’s NHL scores, because we missed a day. David Pastrnak had a hat trick in the Bruins 5-1 toppling of the Maple Leafs on Saturday, and yesterday the Devils wrapped up their 7-game road trip with a loss to the Jets. They finished the trip 1-6-0. Woof.
- Looking ahead for the week, the Hockey Hall of Fame inductions will be today, Elias Pettersson will celebrate his 20th birthday today in New York, and the Rangers and Islanders renew their rivalry once again on Thursday. [NHL]
- Martin St. Louis is one of the inductees this year, and his story, though it’s been told a million times, is still one of the best underdog stories in the history of the sport. [NHL]
