Newsday: John Jeansonne's article had comments from head coach Scott Gordon on Tim Jackman with the forwards comments about next season and what he did to improve his skating last summer.

The coach also reported goaltender Joey MacDonald is " all set " to return and that Doug Weight and Andy Sutton were at practice but have not been cleared to return.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I found it somewhat interesting Jackman said instead of having to prove himself to ownership, it's just to prove to the coaches and my teammates that I can do what is needed next year.

Ct Post: Michael Fornabaio's article is on Kurtis McLean's torn Achillies with his comments how it could have happened doing anything as the wall ball/soccer tradition was written about and that he faces four to six months of rehab.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
He's right that it could have happened anywhere and this is a standard warm-up for a lot of players. Only problem is now do the Islanders-Sound Tigers consider resigning him this summer?

Ct Post: Mr Fornabaio also has the Sound Tigers weekly and previews tonight's makeup game against Worcester at Harbor Yard despite both teams meeting Friday here with Bridgeport able to clinch their first playoff spot in two years as early as Wednesday.
