It’s Friday. Here’s a little bit of what’s been going on over the past 24 hours…
Eyes On Isles / Michael Willhoft – Isles Grind Out Win, What Else Is New? - Josh Bailey scores a pair of goals in Boston and Evgeni Nabakov shuts the door in goal as the Islanders get even closer to their first playoff berth since 2007.
A Winning Habit / Lisa Fiorilli – Canadiens Clinch A Playoff Berth, Beat Buffalo Sabres 5-1 – The Canadiens are an interesting case of a team that finished poorly in 2011-12 and have stormed back in 2012-13. Also, P.K. Subban is probably the best contract in the league right now.
Senshot / Jamie Clarke – The Slump Is Broken, Senators Ground Flyers 3-1 – Ottawa gets two badly needed points to remain above the cut line in the East
Too Many Men / Derek Stykalo – Red Wings To Sign G Jimmy Howard To 6 Year Extension – Jimmy Howard‘s cap hit will look a lot like Roberto Luongo‘s for the next six years at 5.3M per year. If I’m a Red Wings fan, I don’t know if I’m wild about the length of that term.
Tyler Dellow / MC79 – Next Year Country – The defence is paper thin, and the Oilers will need to address that if they’d like to get better next year. Tape this and play it back until it gets fixed, or you vomit.
Random video of the day: Josh Bailey scores his second for the Islanders in their 2-1 victory over Boston.
