Guerin Fighting Slump

from Newsday,

When forward Bill Guerin received the “C” on his new .Islanders jersey last summer, he embraced the opportunity to set the tone in the locker room. Praise for Guerin’s all-inclusive approach has been universal within the organization, but somewhere along the line, he has misplaced his former identity as “goal scorer.”

Guerin’s 14-game scoreless streak ended Wednesday with an assist on Trent Hunter’s tying power-play goal in what became a 4-3 shootout loss to Atlanta. But Guerin still hasn’t found the back of the net with his own shot since Nov. 1, and now he admits to feeling more pressure to lead where it counts most.
