There were only 5 games on a fairly slow NHL Sunday. There was only 1 Former Islander contribution of note meaning it was an even slower Sunday for FIs. Let us take a look at the one highlight:
St. Louis winger Steve Regier, playing in his first game of the season, popped in 2 goals and received the first star of the game honor as the Blues were edged by the visiting Montreal Canadiens 3-2 in the SO. Regier scored the first goal of his NHL career only 3:48 in to stake the Blues to a 1-0 lead. Regier then added goal number 2, his first powerplay tally, only 3:24 in to the 3rd period to again give the Blues a one goal lead. Regier had played 18 games over parts of 3 seasons with the Isles but never registered a point. The Blues picked Regier up in the offseason after the Islanders cut ties with him and he made some appearances in the preseason for St. Louis. Regier was tearing it up for the Blues' AHL team, the Peoria Rivermen, with 17 points (9 goals, 8 assists) on 17 games before getting the call up before an injury to center Andy McDonald made a spot available for the youngster. Congratulations to Steve on the start to what we hope is an eventful career!
