Newsday: Greg Logan's pre quote game summary on the Islanders loss to the Florida Panthers.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
Mr Logan wrote Jeff Tambellini saw his first his first chance to play on the top line this season as he described his play to get the puck to Richard Park who fed Guerin for his goal. Tambellini did play a game as a first line left wing with Mike Comrie and Bill Guerin as a first line left wing earlier this season.
Tambellini was sent down days later after the line struggled badly in that game and one shift where they could not get the puck out. I'm not sure Tambellini-Park-Guerin was the first line in this game either with Comrie on a line with Comeau.
Newsday: Greg Logan's other article is on the injuries with Ted Nolan getting to learn the new players and his praise for Bill Guerin and Rick DiPietro in a losing effort.
