Islander News Articles 3/30

New York Islander Fan Central | 3/30/2009 03:09:00 AM | | | | Reports Islander Prospect Corey Trivino -- who was selected in the second round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders, opened the scoring in Boston Terrier's win Sunday which sends them to the NCAA Frozen Four.

Calgary Herald: Bruce Downbiggin in a Flames centric article had former Islander gm Mike Milbury taking on media personality Al Strachan about why his record with the Islanders is talked about but not Wayne Gretzky's as Coyotes coach?

NYI Fan Central Comments:
What's interesting is Mr Downbiggin defends Gretzky by writing among several reasons the experienced Olli Jokinen was a dud for ol' 99 in the desert.

That would be the same Olli Jokinen who showed up out of shape a decade ago for the Mike Milbury-Butch Goring Islanders and was traded. Reports Bridgeport lost 5-3 at Lowell Sunday. Peter Mannino faced thirty five shots (twenty two in the first period) in a game Bridgeport trailed 5-1.
