Today's Islander Blog


"After DiPietro and backup goaltender Mike Dunham each got shelled in consecutive home losses to Atlanta and Tampa Bay, coach Ted Nolan and his staff sat down with the goaltenders and the defensemen to work out a better system of communication. To make a long story short, the goaltenders devised a series of code words for the defensemen to use and a plan for where they prefer everyone to be in certain situations. Because the goaltenders have their heads down while handling the puck and canít see the opposition coming, the defense signals where and how to play the puck by shouting the code words for the proper play."

This blog is really good. It gives us more insight than just the facts that we all saw by watching the game the night before. I dont ever remember getting in depth information like this from our previous Newsday reporter

Kudos to Greg Logan. Keep up the good work.

ya that was a really good read.. I guess after all the harsh criticism about Newsday not giving a crap about the isles, they finally got someone in the seat who cares.
