Islanders Show Interest In Kovalchuk

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The other team in town is big-game hunting. Islanders’ GM Garth Snow has checked in with the Thrashers about the availability of marquee all-star left wing Ilya Kovalchuk, leaving the message with Atlanta GM Don Waddell that the team intends to be in the mix if the impending unrestricted free agent is placed on the trade market, The Post has learned from a well-placed source.

Tavares Slumping

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Garth Snow never doubted whom he would pick with the Islanders’ top selection over the summer and John Tavares has made the Islanders’ GM look good for much of his rookie season.

Lately, however, the young center has seen his production slip significantly, as Tavares only has one point in his last eight games.

But that’s not a cause for concern for Snow.

“He’s 19 years old,” Snow said of Tavares, who has 28 points (16 goals, 12 assists) in his first 40 games in the NHL heading into tonight’s match against Columbus at the Coliseum. “Any time a young guy is going to come out of juniors or college hockey into this league, it’s not going to be a seamless transition.”

Rick DiPietro Update

via Katie Strang (took 3 tweets),

Statement from Garth Snow after the game:

“Ricky has been seen by the team doctors and most recently a specialist to make sure we are taking the proper steps in his rehabilitation.  We will seek an additional opinion and should have a time line by the end of the week.”

In case you were unaware, DiPietro left his last rehag game early due to soreness in his leg.  He was scheduled to play again tonight but did not.

Big Test For DiPietro Tonight

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Rick DiPietro has made it through months of practice and drills without getting hurt. Tonight, he and the Islanders will see how his body holds up during a game.

It’s been nearly a year since the team’s injury-prone franchise goalie has suited up. Last January, swelling in his surgically repaired knee forced him from the lineup again.

“This is really big for him,” said GM Garth Snow, who will be in Bridgeport tonight to see the Isles’ AHL affiliate Sound Tigers host Springfield with DiPietro in net for the first time since Jan. 2. “It’s certainly been a long road to recovery for him.”

Roloson Stones The Leafs

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

The players were hoping that a second win in 72 hours, the club’s first back-to-backs in almost a year, might give GM Brian Burke pause for thought as he contemplates trades and call-ups.

But the 40-year-old Roloson had other plans. The 61 Toronto shots tied the modern-day team record from an 8-0 win over Detroit in February of 1976.

“I don’t know what to say,” Kessel chanted after getting his sixth goal to start the three-goal comeback in the second period. “Sixty shots…it was unbelievable and still we don’t win (the Isles were held to 20 shots). We have to bury the chances.

“We had a little lapse for five minutes and it cost us.”

Coach Ron Wilson had seen Roloson play some great games while both were in the Western Conference, but this took the cake.

“We missed the net a lot of times and I’ll bet we had 100 shots altogether,” Wilson said. “I just don’t want our team to get frustrated. Phil thinks he can score when he has the puck, but a lot of our guys just hope to do it.”

DiPietro Getting Closer To Return

from Katie Strang of Isles Files,

While the full group will not be on the ice at IceWorks in Syosset tomorrow—since the Islanders will arrive in New York late after tonight’s game—DiPietro’s participation tomorrow will be viewed as the next significant step in his rehabilitation.

“Everything has gone according to plan,” Gordon said before Monday’s game against Toronto. “This isn’t anything unexpected. We’d be disappointed if he wasn’t on the ice soon.”...

After DiPietro practices with the team, he will eventually head to Bridgeport for a conditioning stint, during which he’ll likely play 2-5 games before making his 2009-2010 debut.
