BREAKING NEWS: Point Blank Readers Recall FritzJust kiddin’: the Islanders recall enforcer Mitch Fritz

11:25 am, NVMC – Enforcer Mitch Fritz is on the ice with the Islanders at practice this morning at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.


The 6-8 Fritz is wearing a yellow practice jersey, along with hip surgery-recovering Mike Sillinger. Scott Gordon also has the following trios:


Hilbert – Thompson – Park


Hunter – Nielsen – Okposo


Tambellini – Comrie – Sim


Bergenheim – Weight – Guerin



What it all means right now, would be silly to guess. Okay, we will. Fritz will play Thursday night in Philadelphia, and one of the 8 wings will take in a game from the press box.


Now if the Phillies-Rays are postponed again tonight, any chance the NHL and Flyers move the puck-drop time – or move the game altogether? Just a thought.
