Happy New Year to all you Islanders fans. Here's to a very happy and healthy 2010, whether or not you live up to your resolutions ;)

No formal practice for the Isles today following their 3-2 shootout loss to Ottawa, but they'll be around IceWorks for some off-ice workouts.

Meanwhile, I'm bundled up with my snuggie (yes, I really do have one...in leopard-print, no less) waiting for the Winter Classic from Fenway.

We're about an hour away from puck drop, but if you are tuning in to see if Kyle Okposo grabs a coveted spot on the U.S. Olympic team, it looks like you may be waiting a few hours. I thought the 23-man roster was going to be unveiled during the first intermission, but now it looks like it won't be until after the game.

I'll check back in later, regardless of the result....
