Yard Sale Celly Ep. 3 recap - Senators Covid outbreak, UBS Arena opens to disappointing results

Note: this week's episode of Yard Sale Celly was cut short sadly, as I just started a new job and the upcoming holiday has put me behind a few days.


The audio was recorded over the weekend as I anticipated a Monday night release, but editing was unfortunately pushed back a few days. So, sorry in advance if a few of the stats that I state in the episode are outdated.

On this weeks (short) episode of Yard Sale Celly, we discuss:


  • The recent Covid outbreak inside the Senators locker room that resulted in the suspension of 3 games. The Ottawa Senators had 3 games against the New Jersey Devils, Nashville Predators and New York Rangers suspended due to a Covid outbreak in their locker room. 10 players, including assistant coach, Jack Capuano, tested positive for Covid.


  • The New York Islanders open UBS Arena on Long Island to disappointing results. Following years of relocation rumors, uncertainty within the organization that they'd have a long term residence on Long Island, the New York Islanders finally came home to an arena that they can call their own since the Nassau Coliseum. The Islanders opened UBS Arena against the Calgary Flames, where they'd be defeated 5-2. They went on to lose their second game at UBS against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Islanders are on a 6 game losing streak heading into Wednesday night's game against the New York Rangers.


  • Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Ryan Ellis will be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a lower body injury


  • Are the Vancouver Canucks buyers or sellers this trade deadline? Vancouver GM Jim Benning has been in touch with teams around the league following a disappointing start to the season.


  • Kevin Labanc's borderline slew-foot suspension. San Jose Sharks forward, Kevin Labanc, was suspended for one game after he was found guilty of slew-footing St. Louis Blues Tyler Bozak. Hear my reaction in the latest episode, but judge the call for yourself.
