A few quick hits off the morning:
–Some more new combinations today. Niederreiter-Nelson-Kabanov, Halmo-Watkins-Backman to name a couple. Well, “them,” really. Otherwise looked similar.
–John Persson and Ty Wishart took the full practice. Pellerin said that, jersey appearances aside (he was in orange, not red, with Johan Sundstrom), Persson was in more of a non-contact spot today. They’ll presumably see how both those players are tomorrow in Manchester.
– Sundstrom continued to look good. Sounds like just a couple of more days.
–Jamie says the Islanders broadcast tonight will feature a piece that Phil filmed recently with Brock Nelson.
–If you’re watching another game, the Rangers recalled Micheal Haley for tonight’s game against Philadelphia. They’re on the Island on Thursday, too, if he sticks around.
