Sunday November 25

Four games were on the schedule on Sunday night. Former Islanders are yet again in the fray trying to help their respective teams however they can. FIs were responsible for 5 assists and a shutout. Let us take as look at their contributions from Sunday night:

* Blues' defenseman Eric Brewer assisted on the game winning goal only 27 seconds into the game to help lift St. Louis over the visiting Calgary Flames 3-0. In his 16 games this season, Brewer has 5 points on 1 goal and 4 assists.

* The FI action was heavy on Sunday night as the host Anaheim Ducks downed the Los Angeles Kings 3-2. On the losing side, Derek Armstrong notched an assist on the opening goal. Now 23 games into his season, Armstrong has still not scored a goal. He has 10 assists on the season but is struggling to find net while mired in a 24 game goal-less streak dating back to last season. Ducks' defenseman Mathieu Schneider assisted on the first Anaheim goal. Schneider snapped a 2 game point-less streak, his longest of the season, and now has 9 points (2 goals, 7 assists) on only 9 games this year. Todd Bertuzzi then added the primary assists on the second Ducks' goal and the game winner. With a mere 10 games played this season, Bert has 5 points on 1 goal and 4 assists. This was Bertuzzi's second multi-point game of the season with his prior coming on October 3 (only 3 games in).

* Roberto Luongo turned back 27 shots to record his 2nd shutout of the season as the Vancouver Canucks downed the visiting Chicago Blackhawks 2-0. Recipient of the first star of the game, Luongo improved to 10-9-2 with the win.
