Regardless of where we are from or whom we love, of where we worship or what language we speak, the values that unite us are stronger than our differences.We all want our children to have access to a quality education, and for our families to feel included and safe in their communities.William Penn founded Pennsylvania on the principles of fairness, inclusion, and tolerance. It is in this spirit that we unite our voices and speak together to uphold his vision for our Commonwealth.The commonwealth is proud to honor the history and contributions of AAPIs in our state and throughout the nation, and will hold a celebration in honor of AAPI Heritage Month on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at The Forum Auditorium (500 Walnut Street, Harrisburg, PA) from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.The Wolf Administration encourages all Pennsylvanians to celebrate this important observance and to continue to work toward the goal of liberty and justice for all.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf May 26, 2017
“I’ll see Peter [Laviolette] maybe in the summer and we’ll discuss that a little bit,” Trotz told reporters Thursday in Boston, two days after his squad lost to the Nashville Predators. “I wasn’t a big fan of that. It’s 8-3 and you’re putting your guys blasting pucks and you’re putting guys at risk. That’s fine. Everybody has their own way of doing it. I probably wouldn’t have done it that way.“It tells me a lot about him,” Trotz continued.The 2010s: Crosby named NHL Athlete of the Decade | NHL All-Decade TeamSo, what got the Isles bench boss so perturbed? With just under four minutes left in regulation, his squad was down two men and on the 5-on-3 Laviolette opted to play his top power-play unit in defensemen Roman Josi and Ryan Ellis and forwards Ryan Johansen, Filip Forsberg and Matt Duchene. Youth hockey coaches know the rule: if you have a big lead, take your foot off the gas. If you don’t, it’s considered an unsportsmanlike approach to the game.Of course for the professionals, it’s a little different — unless you ask New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz. That didn’t affect the scoreboard, but according to Newsday’s’ Andrew Gross, Casey Cizikas blocked three shots, including one to the arm that seemed to cause him some pain.Laviolette, who coached the Islanders in 2001-02, has been the coach of the Predators since 2014 — after Trotz was let go. Both coaches have hefty resumes, with Trotz holding a 2-0 advantage in Jack Adams Awards as the NHL’s top coach and each winning the Louis A.R. Pieri Memorial Award as the AHL’s best bench boss.The loss was the Islanders first at home in regulation since Oct. 8 against the Edmonton Oilers. Nashville will host the Islanders in February, ironically, on the day before Valentine’s Day.
