National Hockey League has announced a shutdown starting after Tuesday night's games. This will be the first major league to completely shutdown action since 2020 because of the pandemic. Actually, the 'shutdown' sounds worse than it is.
Game 6 overtime against the Lightning had a bad memory attached. Tampa Bay’s Anthony Cerrelli eliminated the Isles in the same game last year...That was in The Bubble. This one was in The Barn. Anthony Bouvillier of the Islanders made short order of overtime, scoring just 68 seconds into the extra period. Somehow, in the excitement, Islander fans thought sending beer cans flying onto the ice was OK. It’s not but I understand the situation and I think the Islander players did too.
