Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Wednesday, November 8, and this is what I’m focused on around the NHL today.
Islanders Lose Lead In Latest Loss To Wild:
After a 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild last night, the New York Islanders have now dropped three of their last four contests after holding the lead in each of them.
Oilers Waive Jack Campbell:
With their season heading in the wrong direction, the Edmonton Oilers have opted to make a change in goal and placed netminder Jack Campbell on waivers for purpose of assignment.
In five starts this year, Campbell was 1-4-0 with a 4.50 GAA and a .873 save percentage.
