LOS ANGELES at ISLANDERS, 7:05 pmNate Thompson out another 4-6 weeks

The Islanders have announced that can’t-catch-a-break Nate Thompson will be out another 4-6 weeks with an injured shoulder. Mark Streit is definitely out of tonight’s tilt against the young, skilled and energetic Kings – another model for your NYI.


I will be away on another one of those pesky assignments. Kid Kevin of Barry Melrose Rocks will be at the game in primo seats I stole for him. After the game, he’ll post his observations and Part II of his look at goaltending options for the Islanders. I’ll be back tomorrow with a series of potential Pulitzer nominees…CB
