JT: You want a piece of me? Kparghai: *chomp*


The link is in German. Since neither this language nor English is my mother language, I won't try a full translation and I'll direct you to Google Translate if you want more details. In short: a disciplinary procedure has been opened against Biel defenseman Clarence Kparghai, who's suspected of having bitten John Tavares during a game one week ago. In the last minute of the second period, JT had a contact with Biel goalie Reto Berra. Kparghai went to defend his netminder. Tavares had him in a headlock, and that's when Kparghai reportedly bit him in the ribs area. To prove it, it seems that Tavares has a bite mark. He also has marks on the neck, as shown in the pictures, though it isn't reported how these were caused. Kparghai, who plays without a mouthguard, denies any wrongdoing and says that JT pressed his (Kparghai's) face against his (JT's) belly. Our beloved "unique judge" will decide. I'll keep you informed.

Canadian Journalist Takes Potshots at Islanders in Unrelated Article


Yeah, I know, the sun rose this morning, too. Of course, Tavares appreciating the loud fans in Swiss rinks is related to the low attendance and noise level (?) at the NVMC, but there is no remark of that kind when Patrick Kane or Logan Couture do the same. You'll notice though that he resisted cracking a Milbury joke about the shoe-throwing episode.

An Islander among the best in % of ES shots blocked


In an attempt to mitigate the fact that you tend to block more shots when you allow more of them, Daniel Wagner of Backhand Shelf has computed the percentage of even-strength shots faced that each player blocked. Guess who tops the forwards list. (Small sample, I know.)
