"I'm really grateful for what Snowy and Jack did for me. It's something I'll never forget. They pretty much put me on the map," Parenteau said before the game. "I had two great years here, I got to play with some awesome players and it was an important time for me."
Lubomir Visnovsky was evaluated by the team doctors and was not cleared to participate in the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympic Games.
Visnovsky missed 46 of the 60 games the Islanders have played this season.
"I’m honored to have been selected to represent Slovakia at the Sochi Games," Visnovsky said. "I’m disappointed that I will not have this opportunity to compete for my country, but respect the decision the Islanders have made. I’m excited to watch Team Slovakia compete throughout the next two weeks and wish them all the best."

As disappointing as it is for Lubo Visnovsky to not play in the Olympics for Slovakia, the right decision was made for his longterm health.
