Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Shelly Anderson reports on the Penguins at practice. Marc-Andre Fluery will not be ready to return against the Islanders who will face a well-rested club on Wednesday night. Dany Sabourin is 1-1-1 with five goals allowed in three starts in Fleury's absence with the NHL's best goals-against average, 1.66, and the third-best save percentage, .935 at 4-2-1 overall this season.
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: Mr Anderson also reports on the Pens changes to their powerplay which has been struggling for a club 7-1-1 in November and fourth in the Eastern Conference
Yahoo Sports: Ross McKeon had the weekly power rankings and it's obvious he does not follow the Islanders based on his ranking which apparently has little to do with the games.
NYI Fan Central Comments:
I have been phasing out all yahoo sports content, this will be Mr McKeon's final ranking to appear at NYI Fan Central. Cannot be bothered with work that is clearly poorly done or waste my readers time.
Media Blog: Cory Witt reports Joey MacDonald's seven wins in November leads all NHL goaltenders.
Note-I posted the Islanders weekly prospect watch on NYI Fan Central Prospect blog on Monday when it was released. All updates are linked by date on that blog.
Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio blogged on Tuesday's optional practice with some schedule changes for the Sound Tigers later in the season.
No reported callups at this time as of his 2:30pm blog update.
