Only 4 games were on the NHL schedule on Sunday night limiting the amound of Former Islander action. Let us take a look at the little bit of FI news from Sunday:
* Ryan Smyth had a goal and 2 assists, including one on the game winner, as the Colorado Avalanche and visiting St. Louis Blues had an offensive throwdown resulting in a 9-5 Avs win. The victory was the 1,000th since the franchise moved to Denver in 1996. It seems Smyth is finally finding his form. He now has 24 points (9 goals, 15 assists) on 29 games this year. It was his third 3 point night in the last 5 games and on his current hot streak has 7 points (1 goal, 6 assists) in his last 3 games and 10 points (3 goals, 7 assists) in his last 5 games. Also making a small contribution was Blues' defenseman Eric Brewer who received the secondary assist on the final goal of the game, a powerplay tally, with only 41 seconds remaining in regulation. Brewer snapped a 3 game point-less streak and now has 7 (1 goal, 6 assists) on 22 games this season. The powerplay helper was only the second of the year for Brewer.
