The New York Islanders cruised to a 6-1 win over the Phoenix Coyotes Tuesday at the Nassau Coliseum. John Tavares scored twice while Josh Bailey, Frans Nielsen and Michael Grabner each had three point nights to help pace the Islanders. With the victory, the Isles now have five out of a possible six points in their first three games. Despite the one-sided score, Isles’ coach Jack Capuano said his team needed to work on a few things. “The score obviously wasn’t an indication of how the game went,” Capuano admitted. “Tonight we got some bounces.” The Islanders also got some strong goaltending by Evgeni Nabokov who made 33 saves and balanced scoring as each of the club’s four lines contributed at least one goal. Peter Regin broke the ice just 1:49 into the game to help set the tone for the home team. Brock Nelson earned the only assist on the goal to earn his first NHL point. Tavares cashed in on a 5-on-3 power play with just under 5:00 left in the first period to increase the lead to 2-0 despite the fact that the Coyotes outshot the home team 7-6 in the first period and had plenty of time in the New York zone. The Islanders did a good job of preventing the Coyotes from getting into the slot and getting quality scoring chances. Matt Donovan scored his first NHL goal at 11:47 of the second period on the power play. He took a shot from just inside the blue line which trickled past Phoenix starter Mike Smith who had a rough outing tonight. Needless to say, Donovan was excited by his first NHL tally. “It was awesome. Obviously, it barely trickled in but I’ll take ‘em any way I can get ‘em,” he said. After Martin Hanzal scored at 12:30 of the second period to pull the Coyotes to within 3-1, the Isles answered quickly with Tavares netting his second of the night off a pretty pass by Michael Grabner 2:19 later to restore a three-goal lead for the home team. “That was a big goal for us,” Capuano admitted, especially in light of the Isles loss to Columbus after holding a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes. “I sensed the positivity on the bench from our guys…The other night at home, we didn’t play the way we wanted to play, we didn’t finish the way we wanted to finish. We wanted to play close to 60 minutes of consistent effort tonight.” Colin McDonald scored his first goal of the season at 17:24 of the second period to put the game out of reach. The Coyotes pulled Smith after two periods and sent out backup Thomas Greiss to play the third period. Greiss stopped seven of the eight shots he faced. Bailey added the only goal of the third period to put the icing on the cake and clinch a 6-1 final score. In the end, Tavares was happy to see some of the younger players contributing offensively. “It’s great to see Dono (Matt Donovan) and Brock [Nelson] chip in offensively,” the Isles’ captain said. “They played really well throughout the preseason. It’s an exciting time for them to make the team and show themselves early in the season. It’s nice to see them contribute.” The Islanders return to action Friday night when they travel to Chicago to take on the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks. NOTES: The game got chippy in the third period with the Coyotes growing frustrated with their poor performance. Attendance was 10,288. In addition to scoring his first goal as an Islander, Peter Regin won 9-of-13 faceoffs. Casey Cizikas led all Isles players with five hits. The Coyotes outhit the Isles 34-15.

Wednesday October 9, 2013 No, this is NOT a tell all post! As I was thinking about writing this, what came to my mind was that people offer up a lot of "you must do this" advice but I am sure that none of us are perfect behind closed doors. I know I am not for sure!!!What am I talking about here? As I read a lot of posts & honestly I read more of this on Instagram - I see statements like:1. Sugar is evil. You must not eat any sugar or else... well, they don't say or else but the implication is there.2. If you eat anything but whole foods, you are short changing yourself or implying that you are "bad".3. Moderation is an excuse word.4. You must eat "this way" or "that way" - I am not putting any specific program in here but there are many.5. This is the only way to work out. You don't need to do "that" OR you don't need more than 20-30 minutes of cardio.These are just a few of the things I read out there. Here is what I have to say about this:1. To each their own. I have my way of living, eating & exercising. Yes, I eat pretty well but by no means perfect. I exercise in a way many say is not right. Hey, it works for me & that is what matters. I can live with it. I have changed it over time & I am sure I will change it again as I age. We all have to find what works for us & that WE ENJOY!2. Yes, we all know that too much sugar is bad for us. No doubt about that! To treat ourselves now & then is not being bad. To have food with some sugar grams in them during the week is not a horrible thing, especially if we know what we are eating & keep it to manageable levels. It is when people lose sight or accountability of what they are eating & how much sugar or "bad fat" or "not the best carbs" or any of the other foods that people consider "wrong" - that is where things get out of control. A little bit of sugar or 1 soda a day or any of the many other things people say we should never do is not going to hurt long term especially if we eat pretty dang good a majority of the time. I know, many are going to extrapolate out if you have this many sugar grams over a week x so many days OR 1 can of soda x so many days... Listen, in the scheme of things, if you are eating great 85% of the time, to enjoy life a little is not a "bad" thing! Do what is right for you but don't tell others that really live a very healthy lifestyle a majority of the time that having a cookie or 1 soda or any anything else every now & then is horrible. It is about living a happy & healthy life long term & finding that balance that works for you!3. I eat mostly whole foods but not 100%. Some rely on healthier versions of boxed or frozen or packaged foods mixed with whole foods. Hey, if it works for them, if they are healthy, if the make-up works out right mixing the different foods & they are happy with it, who are we to tell them it is wrong. Some people just manage time better & can food prep. Others have different priorities but are still healthy. Yes, a goal is definitely to eat more whole foods but nobody is bad because they do not eat all whole foods. I am a label reader & there are lots of great choices out there these days.4. Cardio is a huge subject out there. Many think there is no need to do 60 minutes or more of cardio 4-5 days a week if you do HIIT or lift weights along with eating healthy. I am just saying that we are all different & this is not always the case, especially if you want to enjoy some "fun foods" or not eat "perfect". I have always had to do more cardio even when I was younger. I could eat more when I was younger too! As we age, it gets harder to maintain even eating well & doing weights, cardio & HIIT. I do intervals, cardio, HIIT, weight training & eat pretty darn good but I have to do more cardio. That is me. Some of you have an easier time keeping weight off OR a different body type than me or others OR are younger.... Let's just say that just because it works for you does not mean it works for others.5. Moderation - some feel that is

Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, If the American public knew what was going on in our system, half would be outraged and the other half would apply for benefits. - Marilyn Zahm, one of the 1,500 disability judges operating in the U.S. I’ve known about the “disability” scam for many years now, but I had never read a report that details the racket until I checked out the following from CBS’ 60 Minutes. As usual, the real money being made in the whole scheme is not centered around the people collecting the checks, but rather attorneys, doctors and even judges who grease the wheels of the $135 billion “disability-industrial-complex.” For example, in the economically depressed border area of Kentucky and West Virginia we find 10%-15% of the population on disability, or three times the national average. The regional disability racket is essentially run by attorney Eric Conn, who’s clients for disability enjoy a 100% success rate thanks to Mr. Conn’s relationship with doctors and a local judge named David Daugherty. Here are just a couple of examples of how Mr. Conn uses his advertising budget: Senator Tom Coburn explains to CBS’ 60 Minutes that: Coburn says the report — to be released tomorrow — will show that Conn collected more than $13 million in legal fees from the federal government over the past six years and that he paid five doctors roughly $2 million to regularly sign off on bogus medical forms that had been manufactured and filled out ahead of time by Conn’s staff. Just another scam from a scam economy. More from 60 minutes: The hearing involves the Federal Disability Insurance Program, which could become the first government benefits program to run out of money. When it began back in the 1950s it was envisioned as a small program to assist people who were unable to work because of illness or injury. Today, it serves nearly 12 million people — up 20 percent in the last six years — and has a budget of $135 billion. That’s more than the government spent last year on the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department, and the Labor Department combined. It’s been called a “secret welfare system” with it’s own “disability industrial complex,” a system ravaged by waste and fraud. A lot of people want to know what’s going on. Especially Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma. Tom Coburn: Go read the statute. If there’s any job in the economy you can perform, you are not eligible for disability. That’s pretty clear. So, where’d all those disabled people come from? The Social Security Administration, which runs the disability program says the explosive surge is due to aging baby boomers and the lingering effects of a bad economy. But Sen. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, the ranking Republican on the Senate Subcommittee for Investigations — who’s also a physician — says it’s more complicated than that. Last year, his staff randomly selected hundreds of disability files and found that 25 percent of them should never have been approved — another 20 percent, he said, were highly questionable. Sen. Coburn says disability payments are now propping up the economy in some of the poorest regions in the country. Which is why he sent his investigators to the border area of Kentucky and West Virginia. More than a quarter of a million people in this area are on disability — 10 to 15 percent of the population — about three times the national average. Jennifer Griffith and Sarah Carver processed disability claims at the Social Security regional office in Huntington, West Virginia. Full Segment here:

On Monday night it looked as though the Edmonton Oilers were headed towards an 0-3 mark to start their 2013-14 NHL campaign. Through the first two periods it looked as though nothing was going to change from the first two games of the season; once again a display of bad defense and questionable goaltending. As a result, the Edmonton Oilers found themselves three goals down going into the final frame. The final 20 minutes were unbelievable; It all began with a power play goal from Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who was playing his first game since April 19 after recovering from shoulder surgery. Ference then beat Brodeur with a slapshot; Perron, who has been noticeably quiet since scoring five goals in the pre-season, unleashed a laser; then Taylor Hall, with his first of the season, gave the Oilers the lead.  The Oilers needed all of eight minutes to score four goals on the NHL's all-time best goalie, Martin Brodeur. Patrik Elias scored the Devils’ first short-handed goal of the year to send the teams to overtime.  Jordan Eberle and David Perron completed the comeback with dandy backhand moves in the shootout.  The task at hand now for the Edmonton Oilers is to bottle this third period effort and use it consistently for 60 minutes throughout the entire season.Seeing Nugent-Hopkins return and set it all in motion by playing over 28 solid minutes  was an extreme positive.
