New York Islander Fan Central | 11/04/2007 08:12:00 PM Bridgeport Sound Tigers Ct Post Mark Herrmann Michael Fornabaio Newsday NHL Norfolk Admirals NYI Rick DiPietro
All good things must come to an end which means an incredible weekend for Islander fans is over. The special Al Arbour page header up for the weekend goes into moth balls but the new fifteen hundred banner is saved on the page for posterity along with some great new memories.
The old header is back and has been sharpened up as has Bill Torrey's picture.
The Hockey continued today with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers shutting out Steve Stirling's Norfolk Admirals 3-0 on home ice. Jeff Tambellini had a goal, Ben Walter was not in the Sound Tiger lineup as Bridgeport just finished up a three game in three day stretch which is common for those who follow the AHL. Mike Morrison had twenty two saves for the shutout.
Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio reported on the win in his blog and notes former Islander Petteri Nokelainen was called up by the Bruins.
Newsday: Mark Herrmann updated the Islanders Newsday blog Sunday afternoon and wrote Rick DiPietro will return to the doctor tomorrow to determine whether he can play Tuesday along with some other peripheral items.
