Fan with sign: "The old barn will stay open till Islanders win the Cup." Well, sure, but who's going to be playing in it?
Puck drop for Game 3 actually set for 12:20 p.m.
"Always rejoice, constantly pray, in everything give thanks." Have a blessed day !!

Burakovsky's still around with everyone healthy, so it'd be wise to assume he's no longer an emergency recall. Still could go back.
Trotz said decisions on Grubauer, Burakovsky staying will be made "after today."
Does Benteke miss shots on goal anymore?
I've been to 3 CVS stores and one Rite Aid and I can't find a Washington Post. I would go to Borders to get one but...
Trotz on Grubauer: "I just felt that seeing more pucks will get him in more of a rhythm, and what's why he's backing up today."
Trotz said Holtby and Grubauer "will dress today." Not sharing his starter.
So i just heard Brian Shaw say on NBATV, that Randy Wittman's play call at the end of regulation was a good one. I have no comment.
Paul Pierce is LOLing. http://t.co/epaX4knFJ5
Each Game 1 loser has reasons to be optimistic. I'd say Milwaukee should change the least and Dallas the most, but curious what ppl think
Dallas is going to have to junk up the game even more. Dirk is useless defending pick and roll and transition D so bad. I'd go zone more
Two small forwards with big games on Day 1 of the postseason: Paul Pierce and Trevor Ariza. Actually , Pierce is more of a 4-man.
Corey Brewer is going to be the difference in this series because Dallas' transition D is like a Southwest boarding process
Nooooot ideal spacing
BASKETBALL PENALTY KICKS!!!!!!!!!!
This is a Playoff Tweet on Playoff Twitter
How many of Dwight Howard's five fouls were not cheapies?
Rockets got a big bailout by Ariza, because they really miss having a secondary ball-handler with Harden out.
This is sorta the series I expected: Rockets not having a great Dirk matchup when they're on D, but killing him in p&rs
It's crazy watching NBA games in Toronto. Andrew Wiggins is in almost every commercial - for this pink drink called Biosteel, NBACanada, etc
Hubie Brown on Prigioni boxing out Dirk Nowitzki: "That was like a gnat trying to push Godzilla out of the painted area." Hubie's THE BEST!
Rockets are smartly involving Dirk's man directly in the pick and roll rather than letting him rest on the baseline.
Guessing somebody noted this but the Wizards have played overtime in three straight games.
I don't care that Terry air-balled that shot. How did Harden find him?
Pretty sure Harden just yo-yo dribbled
Mavericks got back into the game because Dwight was in foul trouble. If he's out there, game changes.
As somebody who picked the Mavs in this series, I really enjoyed that second quarter.
If James Harden slammed into a brick wall, the wall would get called for the foul
The Rockets' off-ball defense on Rondo on that steal http://t.co/LPfoKRY9Lx
I like how Rondo picked up Harden at half-court on that missed stepback. Have to disrupt his rhythm
Where can I buy a Joey Crawford jersey?
Didn't expect Houston to drop this much on their pick and roll coverage.
I enjoy how Al-Farouq Aminu holds his follow thru. It's as if he thinks hope will guide the three into the basket.
That is such poor defensive footwork by Parsons. I love his offensive game, but his defense...
THAT was Dwight's second foul?
Some terrible Mavs off-ball breakdowns -- Dirk botch, the Monta gamble to leave JET open, the Parsons non-rotation on the first Dwight lob.
Dirk, you can't assume the screen the screener THAT much
Hilarious that the Mavs need Rondo to be Tony Allen for them to win this series.
Better bet: Getting out of the first round against Ronda Rousey or beating Randy Wittman in Game 1 of a playoff series?
Someone should ask Kidd why Middleton hasn't played this quarter.
Bulls doing the Bucks a favor by putting Pau in the corner. Allowed Giannis and Zaza to double Taj
Feel like the difference in this game has been made shots. Bulls making toughies. Bucks missing makeables.
Derrick Rose's three-point shooting: yet another regular-season long con
I still believe MCW can become a good player, but this first half was pretty ugly.
Connor McDavid just learned he'll spend at least the next 10 years in Edmonton and will never become the best player in Oilers history.
I didn't care about the NHL Draft lottery until 2 minutes ago and now I'm sucked in wondering if Connor McDavid lands with the Knicks.
Carter-Williams is getting nailed on these high screens
Flagrant 2 would have at least clarified the Bulls' big man rotation
Best part of the new Star Wars trailer is seeing Harrison Ford without an earring.
Jon Barry is about 18 months too late to the "wow this Bucks' player's last name is hard to say!" jokes
Mirotic and Giannis guarding each other my heart cannot handle this.
Bucks need to put a little more pressure on Noah. Otherwise he can slip passes through cracks in their overload D.
Snell/Dunleavy/Butler and no PG was not something I expected to see.
I think Monty should start Anderson in Game 2. Asik then takes Ajinca's minutes and a few more, plus they play Cunningham more.
Green was great, but I think New Orleans can put him out on an island by staying small more often. Davis was at his worst w/ Asik in.
Pelicans can build on this finish. Davis, in particular
Pelicans put Asik back in and Bogut immediately doubles Davis off the ball
Y'all see that Steph screen for Klay on the high-post split?
Livingston was a spacing liability in last year's playoffs. Wonder if history's starting to repeat itself.
Warriors making Stephen Curry's MVP case in this stretch.
Playoff Otto Porter: "You can tell they were frustrated and I like that. I like to get people frustrated."
There was always going to be one of these games for the Pelicans. Doesn't necessarily mean the rest of the series will be like this.
Wall on Pierce: "He was great. We’ve been asking all along to put him at the 4 a little bit. We’ve been talking about it."
Wall said miscommunication on play at end of regulation was Gortat supposed to stunt for pick, not pick. Supposed to be Wall iso earlier.
What help defense by Golden State. Multiple efforts from Bogut, Curry and Green
Asked Wittman if he was saving Pierce at the 4 for playoffs: "You want me to give you the secrets that we’re going to have for Game 2 also?"
Told about Ujiri's, "We don't give a $h*^ about him" comment, Pierce: "I think I can play psychological game a little bit better than him."
