Sound Tiger News Articles 1/9

New York Islander Fan Central | 1/09/2008 12:11:00 AM | | |
With the Isles on the west coast and articles not available until later in the day for the East Coast combined with a bump in coverage for Bridgeport with Kyle Okposo for a short time I'm going to break up the news updates so our Sound Tiger fans do not have to wait for daily articles.

Might be for only a few days or until the Islanders come back to the East coast, all depends on how much Okposo's games are covered.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio reports on the penalties hurting the Sound Tigers and the media crunch expected for Kyle Okposo's first practice Thursday.

"I think special teams goes in spurts," Capuano said. "Early on, our PK was good, but we weren't winning games. We go through a spurt where the PK's not so good, and we win some games."

"We're trying to develop," Capuano said. "We gave (Sean) Bentivoglio and (Ben) Walter and (Trevor Smith) Smitty some time killing now. They didn't kill too much.
It's an adjustment for some guys."

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's blog is on Joe Rullier now playing in the Swiss league, injury updates and Kyle Okposo being given number twelve. Brad Holland's NHL blog from the WJC did not have Kyle Okposo or Rhett Rakhshani in his top ten but did note their performances.
