New York Islanders
Colorado Avalanche defenseman Erik Johnson has been suspended by the NHL for two games without pay on Tuesday for slashing New York Islanders forward Frans Nielsen.
Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play.
“I thought some guys worked hard and played a good game,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. “Again, with our club we need all 20 guys going, and we didn’t have all 20.”
Colorado Avalanche forward Pierre-Alexandre “P.A.” Parenteau could be the biggest grab for the team in the offseason, but he certainly hasn’t been an overnight success.
