Newsday: Greg Logan's article is about Jeff Tambellini, how much the trip with his son meant to former Islander, Steve Tambellini and what it's like playing on the Islanders top lines.

"I got to listen to my dad deal with players when I was in my teens and hear him talk about prospects going up and going down," Tambellini said. "You just understand there's not a lot of personal stuff. It's business. The quicker you realize that, the easier it is on the mind."

"With a passer like Mike, you just get open," Tambellini said. "Billy's got a great shot, and I think if we can do the things we do well and come up with some speed, we're going to have some great opportunities. The way Mike dishes the puck, hopefully, both of us will have some good scoring chances."

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's coverage is on Blake Comeau, Darryl Bootland and Jeremy Colliton playing their tenth game together as a line with comments from coach Jack Capuano as to how they balance one another as a unit.

There's some work ethic, some grit, some hockey sense," Bridgeport coach Jack Capuano said. "They're a line you can put out, as a coaching staff, really at any time. They can play a little bit of power play for you. Blake and Jeremy have been killing penalties. They get pucks deep, and they're physical."
