The Islanders may have trouble seeing the ice and moving the puck around at times, but they appear to be ahead of the pack when it comes to surveying the dressing room and avoiding potential pitfalls.
As the scourge of cameras catching naked back ends (and then some) continues across professional sports leagues, one Islanders player showed good understanding of his surroundings after the Islanders-Devils preseason game Saturday night. As Islanders captain John Tavares gave a postgame interview, this teammate — whoever he may be — saved the world from getting a glimpse of him in all his naked glory by instead using superior surveillance skills.
The Islanders player was nice enough to peak around the corner of a wall to see whether anyone was looking (and saw a camera right in his line of vision) before hanging back until someone could provide a towel for him to make a less-naked jaunt through the dressing room.
