The Islanders Informer
Entries with the tag: brian rolston
Nino Niederreiter, the 5th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has been listed as day-to-day after suffering a groin injury in the preseason. The Islanders have been patient with Neiderreiter’s groin injury to this point. Nino participated in his first full practice with the team yesterday and has been skating for the past week or so. Nino probably won’t be ready to go when the Isles take on the Winnipeg Jets Thursday on Long Island, but hopefully will be in the lineup on Saturday night against the Washington Capitals or Monday against the Boston Bruins.
The Coliseum was rockin’. The fans were ready. The season ticket holders who have had season tickets for all 40 seasons were at center ice for puck drop. The hype was there. The expectations were justified. The team did a great job with the player introductions. But, there was one thing missing. The team forgot there was a hockey game to be played. They didn’t show up. There is no excuse.
