NATE NICKED

New York Islanders centre Nate Thompson needed a bit of medical attention in the second period last night after the heel of Mike Komisarek's skate blade accidentally came up and struck him in the face as he tried to squeeze under the Leafs defenceman along the boards.

DEFENCE ON OFFENCE

Tomas Kaberle, the only defenceman to be leading his team in scoring in the NHL this season, added an assist last night for his 34th point. Mark Streit of the Islanders, who was the only blueliner to lead his team last season when he recorded 56 points, was held off the scoresheet. Streit has 18 points so far this season.

THIRD DOWN

Toronto has now gone 21 games this season without winning in a contest where it trailed entering the third period.
