Newsday: Greg Logan's game recap has comments from Andy Hilbert, who credited Yann Danis goaltending and how competitive the team is playing now but feels it's still it's not enough if you lose, Bill Guerin discusses his pass back to Doug Weight while Yann Danis shares a story about the referee placing the net back on it's moorings in overtime.

Newsday: Michael Frazier has more on the Daily News article earlier Tuesday on a potential Islander move to Flushing but nothing really that we have not read to this point with Islanders lease preventing a move.

Newsday: Mark Herrmann speculates whether Kyle Okposo could play for team USA at the next Olympics with his comments along with defenseman Jack Johnson.

NY Post: Dan Martin's recap has head coach Scott Gordon on why he went with Nielsen, Okposo and Bailey in the shootout with Okposo and goaltender Yann Danis comments on the game.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

For those who actually follow the team Nielsen shot against Luongo and scored earlier, Okposo and Bailey both have been included in some Islander shootouts. I would not chalk it up to going with kids in shootouts when it's happened already.

Dan Martin covers home games and should know Nielsen scored against Luongo in a shootout at home. Josh Bailey I'm very sure took his first shootout attempt at home also earlier this season.

NY Daily News: Peter Botte's article gives us a few quick paragraphs on the game with quotes from Kyle Okposo and head coach Scott Gordon but most of the article is a repeat of the Daily News article on Islanders moving to Queens.

NYI Fan Central Comments:

You think Mr Botte simply could have linked to the article instead of 1/4 of it being about re-written material instead of a game summary.

Where did they get this headline writer? Islanders take a royal beating losing a shootout. If you did not watch you would think they lost 10-2.

Newsday: Mark Herrmann's article that was deleted early Tuesday on Avery was finally released for the paper now where Mr Herrmann now feels the Islanders are more interesting than the Rangers.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I that wrote article may have been pulled because it was not pro-Ranger. I guess not, but of course Mr Herrmann had a little dig at the Islanders.

Los Angeles Daily News: Has Rich Hammond's game recap with Jack Johnson's comments with print coverage here.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's article features defenseman Chris Lee along with Sound Tigers weekly here.
