Isles look for Dad’s help tonight

By Gary Harding

The Dad’s are on the road with the boys for a few days.

Southern sunshine and hockey – nice combo….

Captain Kovalchuk is back – and that should make things tough.  The Thrash are the best 3rd period team in the NHL – and the Isles have done better in the third frame (forget NJ on Saturday).  So this will be paramount.

Then the Isles head to Tampa to face the Lightning who are struggling right now… Could be a good chance to take a 2 from them.

We will be having a new writer work with me soon.  A fellow by the name of John Panarese will be adding his insight and thoughts on the team.  I welcome him to the site.  He will introduce himself soon.

Have a hockey day folks!
