Newsday: Mark Herrmann blogged in the Islanders space at Newsday and reported Ted Nolan has not named a starter for tomorrow night's game with both goaltenders thinking the other would start. Bruno Gervais skated. Rob Davison talked about how the Garden sounded like half the fans there were Islander fans as the game wore on.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I put the player interviews on the sidebar as usual so we get the full interview.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio reports in his blog Joey MacDonald was sent back to Bridgeport, Jesse Joensuu's season in Finland is over and a possibility to come over. Injured Robin Figren Oil Kings' season ends next week.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio has the Sound Tigers weekly for the Thursday newspaper already on the site with a bunch of items on the team and the Sound Tiger push for the playoffs.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I had updated a while back on Joensuu signing and reporting to Bridgeport which has happened with other Islander draft picks over the years. I have been checking on Robin Figren in the Edmonton Journal but his injury status is about four weeks which seems a little longer than the first report.

Clock is ticking on signing many of these prospects, the old rules for European Prospect signings no longer applies, it's the same as the North American prospects which means they have to be signed within two years or they can re-enter the draft unless they are in college.
