Newsday: Greg Logan has head coach Scott Gordon's comments on the turnovers that killed them, the huge loss of Andy Sutton that overtaxed the defense and why he did not play Mitch Fritz despite dressing him.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

I think Scott Gordon is kidding himself, with Sutton the Wild had at least two breakaways early.

Newsday: Mr Logan's second game article had Kyle Okposo & Mike Comrie's comments on returning the the lineup and former Islander Marc-Andre Bergeron's comments along with a full blog entry here.

Mr Logan also explains the travel from Minnesota to Nashville could be a problem with the weather.

Newsday: Mr Logan repeated most of his pre-game blog for the print edition but had Doug Weight defending the system and felt there has been too much talk about it and disagreed with Columbus Coach Ken Hitchcock's assessment of it being more run and gun.

NY Post: Dan Martin did not have a game article but the Post did have Bill Guerin's comments about being captain in such tough circumstances and talked about the teams attitude being good along with his early days being a player under Scott Stevens with the Devils.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
No post-game comments from Guerin, this came at a point before the club left on the trip. Guerin for his part took a good penalty defending Witt last night. The look of frustration says is all about the captain.
