Farewell to the Nassau Coliseum: Day 62

I’m hosting my old college roommate for a week as he is back in New York beginning his new job. Originally from Pennsylvania, I most likely would have turned him away had the result on Thursday night be different. But shootouts tend to be Islanders territory and all was well in the Pantorno household. With the absence of Okposo, the Islanders have had to have different players...

You never...

The hockey purists have been dealt one last swift kick to the cojones.

Now, I’m totally looking forward to the league and the NHLPA argue over how to split...

The enforcer, who made his career ruffling opponents’ feathers during his 12 years in the NHL, took his agitating ways to the acting world and it cost him his job.

He plays a scrappy game, not for a smallish skilled forward, but just in general. He finishes his hits and for some reason thinks he six foot after the whistle. But that can’t continue reading...

You heard that correctly. Read was neither fined nor suspended for action that could have ended Carcillo’s night, playoff and career...
