  • #Isles G Semyon Varlamov said coaching staff would determine how much he plays in preseason but, usually, he likes to play two full games before start of season. Both him and Thomas Greiss (who I expect to start and play a half game tomorrow) should be able to play 2 full each.

  • #Isles G Semyon Varlamov said he felt "pretty good" for a first preseason game. What he liked was he wasn't "overthinking" during the game, which he said is sometimes natural when you haven't played for a long time

  • The coach likes Koivula's game. #isles
    Re: Otto Koivula Trotz had him on the ice against Kevin Hayes and Flyers top line for most of the first two periods. JVR did score the #Flyers lone goal but Trotz like how Koivula looked defending against Hayes.

  • #Isles D Luca Sbisa, who scored thew winner, said he definitely had "nerves" before game. He played nine games for Isles last season. "I think the game went well, it's been a very long time since I played a game, like nine and a half months."

  • #Isles Colin McDonald spent last 3 seasons in Flyers organization: "To get that first one and be back in Philadelphia...you want to prove these guys wrong, to show you can still make an impact, and not just in the AHL."

  • McMichael and Protas had good first preseason games for Washington. Adam Boqvist obviously is highly skilled offensively. Will see if he plays well enough in his own end to stick with Chicago to start season.

  • #Isles Colin McDonald with an ice pack on his left knee after blocking Justin Braun's first-period blast and having to crawl to bench. Said his leg went dead. OK to return in second period and, as he fights for a roster spot, knew "beggers can't be choosers" for playing time.

  • Damien Riat is under contract for one more season in Swizterland, so he's heading back there later this week. Season has already started there. Said maybe will try to play in North America next season.

  • Kieffer Bellows has a cut on his lower right cheek and the right side of his mouth is swollen after being hit with a puck in first period. He's happy he didn't lose any teeth. Says every time he plays Flyers, even in preseason, he seems to get cut, meaning they play hard.
