Now my loathing for the New York Islanders is well known but I have to give them credit. As I mentioned this summer, the Isles honoured Al Arbour by signing him for a day and allowing him to coach his 1,500th career game.
That game was tonight, a 3-2 win over the Penguins. It was a great night for the Islander organization and for the NHL.
Of course, what made it better was DP getting injured, but that is something else. I will leave the malice out for once and leave you with a fantastic line about the shameless PR move -- I mean, great night -- from Kevin at Barry Melrose Rocks: "Sesame Street reports that the Number Nine is 'very angry.'"
