The stars seemed aligned. Islanders stuck at six defensemen for a while. Sound Tigers call a guy up. (Welcome back, Steve Oleksy.) And there’s a defenseman missing from practice. Well, obviously, that all has to mean that…
Nope. Ty Wishart’s sick. (Guess there’s something going around the team.) They gave him the morning off, partly in hopes of not spreading it further. Otherwise, same as yesterday on the ice.
The broken scoreboard has been patched up. Neatly, it bore one word today, in huge letters: “OUCH !!”
Couple of notes for the weekend, if you didn’t see them in the paper: Sunday is the annual Teddy Bear Toss, so warm up your tossing arms. And Saturday and Sunday, the Sound Tigers wives and girlfriends will be selling the Love for Lokomotiv bracelets you may have heard about. $10.
