Only a few more hours until game time as the NY Islanders visit the Penguins and the Gremlin, Michael Grabner will be playing his 200th NHL Game.
Many have been discussing Grabs ice time and his success rate, but Jack Capuano feels he is doling out ice time appropriately. His grind line is clicking and doing damage, so they will see the ice perhaps more than Grabner. But maybe Grabner needs l...

John Tavares scored two power-play goals in the third period to lift the New York Islanders to a 5-2 win over Washington, ending the Capitals' three-game winning streak.
Tavares scored his 15th goal at 12:13 and his team-leading 16th - the 100th of his career - three minutes later, and Evgeni Nabokov made 22 saves for the Islanders. Josh Bailey, Casey Cizikas and Frans Nielsen...

Our first prospect to see his season come to an end also saw his college career...
Bad luck for Gremlin!
Michael Grabner has a shoulder injury that will keep him out of the line-up for at least 7 - 10 days when he will be re-evaluated. I am not sure how the injury occured.
Jesse Joensuu is practicing with the Isles today for the first time since his injury and return to the Island.
Also on the ice this morning at Iceworks is Carkner who has been out of...
