Isles Link Checks 12/27/11

Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and spending time with loved ones.

No real segue here, so I'm going to get right into it. This past week...not so great for the New York Islanders; going 2-3 and those three losses being consecutive. We saw two Isles go down with conussions (Montoya, Ullstrom) and one starting his recovery process from one (Rolston). But, there were some awesome articles around the web from the past week. Let's take a look shall we?

From The Checking Line:

Check out Rob McGowan's feature on PA Parenteau and why he should be recognized as one of the best stories of the Islanders' season.

While your in that Rob McGowan type of mood, check out his other articles:

- Read his story on injuries and how they are hurting the Islanders this season.

- Check up on how the Islanders' prospects are doing in Rob's "Prospect Check".

While we slowly come down from our Rob McGowan high, take a look at my post game recap from the Islanders' 3-2 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets.

For you wrestling fans, the WWE invaded the Nassau Coliseum on December 17th. WWE superstar CM Punk had a little fun walking around the Islanders locker room. Thus prompting him to tweet this:
