Tavares and Clutterbuck

So, in the space of about a minute I read two storing emanating from Toronto:

1.   http://www.torontosun.com/sports/hockey/2011/03/07/17529411.html
quotes John Tavares as ""I love being a New York Islander."

2.  http://www.thehockeynews.com/articles/38894-THNcom-Blog-What-Taylor-Hall-forfeited-for-a-senseless-fight.html?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=thn_daily_20110308  notes
"Clutterbuck's hit from behind on Justin DiBenedetto was far worse than the one Gillies laid on Clutterbuck. In fact, Clutterbuck is probably lucky Gillies responded the way he did because it took away from how vicious his hit on DiBenedetto was."

Holy Makela! :_)

The Isles, 5-18-5 when they hit the ice on December 16th, but 20-14-5 since host Toronto tonight with a chance to deal some serious hurt to the Leafs' playoff chances. Toronto is 5 points behind 8th place Buffalo and have played one more game than the Sabres.

Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick

Campbell is usually an annoying grump, but he was right on as to Gillies and Clutterbuck and I told him so.
