NYI Fan Central Comments:
Not unexpected the Post editors Greg Gallo and Dick Klayman did not assign Dan Martin or another writer to tell the Islander centric side of the game. Of course it's not appropriate coverage.
Daily News: Let's hope sports editor Leon Carver does not pay Peter Botte by the word because his six paragraph article to cover both teams would not pay for the popcorn after Mr Carver did not even assign a writer to the Montreal game. His article's theme was the Isles recent dominance over New Jersey with a few quotes that the Associated press provided.
NY Times: Dave Caldwell actually had an article mixed in with the others scorers around the league with praise all around for Rick DiPietro with Brent Sutter also praised the Islander goaltender while questioning his pp for not producing with so many second period chances.

Brent Sutter felt the Devils played well in the second half of the game.

Ct Post: Tris Wykes listed as a correspondent covered the game with Steve Stirling's comments he felt the game was over if Ben Walter does not score on a setup from Aaron Johnson at the end of the second period.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
This is kind of like supplemental AP/Ticker coverage of the game. Second game in a row the Ct Post editor did not have Mr Fornabaio in Norfolk but will again meet the club in Philadelphia for the next game. I'm not sure if this is Chris Elsberry decision or someone else or if he is still the sports editor? Some may recall Mr Elsberry used to do some Sound Tiger articles and features in the early years and stepped for a game or two after Mr Fornabaio's car accident a few years ago in the playoffs.
Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio did not cover the game in person and wrote he hopes that's the last time it happens but did blog on the win and notes Jeff Tambellini dominance since returning to Bridgeport with some other items.
Virginina-Pilot: Paul White's article had Steve Stirling's comments that there was no excitement on the Bridgeport bench down 2-0 until they scored in the final second of the second period after having a goal waved off nineteen seconds earlier. Jeff Tambellini is now tied for the AHL lead is goals with twenty four after last night's comeback win.
