sounds about right.

odd thing is shutting down Tavares isnt how to beat Toronto. its shutting down Matthews. Lets remember Tavares doesnt score many bigtime goals. Most nights its tavares scoring the 3 and 4th goals in a 3-0, 4-0 game.

Yup, it will be nice to see if the team comes out focused ready for the team at hand.

Or should I have said maybe maybe not.

Well everyone we didn’t want to win last night did. Pens are of course blowing up right on cue. Exactly what I was afraid of every game has more significance from this point on interested to see how the team responds and whether Lou adds to the line up.

Once the Pens passed the Isles, I didn't think catching them again was realistic. Every year the Pens go on a slide and that kicks off speculation about whether this is the end, and then they figure it out.

The only team in the division I could see possibly falling back to the Isles is Columbus...if Torts loses the team or something. But...that seems like a long shot at this point...they're a damn good team.

If the Isles have a shot this season, I think it'll be Montreal that falls out of the playoffs...and that's probably because every year I have no idea how they stay competitive with the roster they have, so I just always assume they're vulnerable and about to go on a long losing streak.

Most seasons there are like six teams fighting for three spots down the stretch, but this year it feels like there are fewer spots that are going to be up for grabs...the teams that are currently in belong where they are. It's hard to find three teams that seem likely to drop out. Apart from Montreal, the only team I can see falling out of the playoffs altogether is, MAYBE, Buffalo as they haven't looked nearly as invincible since that ridiculous run they went on. But even they seem like they belong where they are at this point.

What's he negative about? Defense and goalies not playing well enough and the Isles coming off of a 3-1 trip? It's killing him that Lou and Barry are doing this with Garth's players.

AHL transactions have the Islanders sending C John Stevens (lower body) to Bridgeport, so healthy enough at least to send down.

He's been hurt all year and, technically speaking, he was with the big club because you can't send injured players down. So now that he's healthy he's been "sent down" from the Isles to BPT.
