A few more clips for today. We’ll have some more Islanders history and podcast goodness coming your way tomorrow as well.
- If you haven’t already read Dom’s look at some of the best Islanders to never win a Stanley Cup, you should do that right away. You’ll find similar articles on this topic scattered around our SB Nation sister sites.
- The Islanders site has started posting short lists from players about their recommendations for entertainment during the quarantine. Anthony Beauvillier is first up and his TV recommendation is a crime drama called Money Heist, or La Casa de Papel, on Netflix. I can personally vouch for that show, which is very tense and pretty cool and clearly influenced by stuff like Reservoir Dogs, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Dog Day Afternoon and lots of other awesome stuff. It’s in Spanish, but you can watch it with subtitles or the English language track. Grab your Dali mask and dive in.
- What’s Matt Martin up to? Well he and his linemates have joined the Peloton crew and he’s just trying to use his time effectively. [Islanders]
- Meanwhile, defensive prospect Samuel Bolduc is staying in shape and is sad for the way his junior season ended. [Islanders]
- Jennifer Botterill stopped by the No Sleep Til Belmont podcast for a pleasant chat with Arthur Staple about her hockey career, broadcasting career and work with the Islanders.
- This story has gotten some play this week. It’s Brett Cyrgalis talking about the ill-fated Barclays Center/Islanders marriage. It’s a pretty general overview of stuff we’ve all been over a million times already and will probably be over a million times more.
- Mat Barzal took part in a big old “hockey nerd” video chat with Patrick Kane and Mark Scheifele. [NHL.com]
- The buzz around Ilya Sorokin’s possible signing is still... buzzing. And Peter Schwartz talked to KHL reporter Gillian Kemmerer about the goalie and what to expect.
- Pierre LeBrun talked to Lou Lamoriello about staying positive during this very weird time. [The Athletic]
- Lou feels we’ll see hockey again this season, but doctors are monitoring data before recommending when sports can return. [The Athletic]
- You know who’s still great? Travis Hamonic, who’s always doing his best to give back to the community. [Kids Help Phone]
