A good Sunday morning to you all. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend is ready for some more hockey. I am currently cuddling with my dog, and I can tell she can’t wait for more hockey. (Actually, she probably can. I kept yelling at the TV yesterday and scaring her, but alas.)
The Islanders are back in Brooklyn today, hosting the Wild at Barclays Center at 3:00 p.m. You can insert your FIGs into this linky here.
