We just have to work harder. It basically comes down to being a little more greedy, a little bit hungrier, have a better effort. We're OK, but OK doesn't cut it."
"We're not trying to split the atom here," said captain Bill Guerin, who has not scored since Nov. 1. "We know how to play. It's just a matter of fine tuning."
NY Post: Dan Martin game summary on the loss to Boston has comments from Ted Nolan, Bill Guerin and Andy Sutton.
Daily News: Peter Botte's coverage is on the lack of scoring, with more of the same from Ted Nolan, Bill Guerin and Andy Sutton. Chris Campoli's late goal brought the Islander power play to
6-66 over sixteen games.
"I shouldn't be making those at this point in my career," Sutton said. "It's definitely hard to rebound from mistakes when we're not generating a lot of scoring as a team."
Boston Globe & Boston Herald: Have the Bruins centric coverage on their first win against New York at the Coliseum since 2001.
Usatoday.com: Kevin Allen has a quick feature on the US team for the WJC which will be announced Tuesday.
Islanders Website: Cory Witt once a week does a summary of the special features done on the team in the media and singled out Tom Liodice, who does an outstanding blog called Tiger Tracks. here
Tom has this ability to do a live blog that makes you feel you are at the game with a writing ability that you either have or do not have. He's at these games live blogging under pressure and does a fantastic job. It's far superior to my work blogging from home the few times I tried.
I highly recommend checking out his site.
Mr Witt also featured some lame blog called New York Islander Fan Central.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I have to admit this puts a smile on my face. Not because of my blog, but because Tom Liodice and I worked together at Hockey's Future as mods/writers for a while and here we are together being recognized on the Islanders website.
I almost feel bad because this was posted at 11:30pm after what had to be a long day for folks like Mr Witt/Mr Botta and people behind the scenes after a tough game and doing this had to cut into the work day. If you do read this thank you very much for the kinds words and taking the time to do this.
Finally thanks to all the folks who visit, e-mail, post in the updates and a special thanks to Mr Prospects who does his daily prospect updates on a message board that's not getting much activity but will keep working hard to build a quality group for some hockey discussion. Of course thanks to all my former members at Islanders-Sound Tigers and the long-time board members at Hockey's Future for all the kind words and support.
