Howie Rose, who has served as the television voice of the Islanders for 20 years, is not hiding his anger over the franchise leaving Long Island (Berman, April 25).

?All that stuff, I just get angry, I?m pissed off they?re leaving,?? said?Rose, a Nassau County resident. ?I?m not happy about it in the least. I?m not yet in the process of trying to make sense of it in a historical standpoint that creates wistfulness. My blood boils thinking about them leaving. Sorry if I don?t have any flowery prose.??

This is the fun in a pre-season scrimmage; the Sound Tigers won 5-3 in regulation but by the time the shootout was all over, the Islanders had clawed their way back to win 6-5. It's all fun and wacky arithmetic when the game doesn't mean anything in the standings.

The funny thing about this particular game is you could tell a little bit about who was in game shape and who had extra motivation. The Sound Tigers for the most part had both of those things, as they're in the middle of the season and if you were on that roster, you didn't get a camp invite (save for the two junior invitees). One particular player who skated like a bat out of hell was Nino Niederreiter. Newsday found Nino after the game:

[sny-box color=E6F1FF]"Of course I was disappointed, but I've learned that there are things you cannot control and you can't worry about those," Niederreiter said after scoring a nifty goal for the Sound Tigers in the scrimmage with the Isles . "I promised myself I wouldn't get frustrated about those things this year. All I can control is what I do on the ice."[/sny-box]
