Am I the only one that hates this team as much as the Rangers?

anybody else believe that cappy is happy with the Isles 'battle level ' so far this month?

I think Halak only gave up 8 goals in the last 7 games.

by the way, simmonds is a tough sob.  he wasn't even breathing hard after the fight.

 Man we gotta get Strait of the ice. I'll take my chances with Donovan. Donovan kept it simple tonight.

ok, strait was rusty, but that interference penalty and the fall-over in the ot don't inspire confidence.  he seems to have a good shot though and doesn't mind taking it.

shutout missing 2 of our regular dmen.... even more impressive.

how come nielsen doesn't score more in the run of play, seeing he's such a clinical finisher in shootouts...

In past years this would have been 3 (EN) - 0 Flyers.

  Not for nothing but the Islanders deserved to win that game.

@Zach14

You think correct mrc. And 3 were in one game against Florida

@mrcisback

with strait on the ice, it's usually time for the pink cement

Other than the two plays you mentioned I thought he had a strong game. But he does seem to have a hiccup or two a game in very bad spots, ala amac style.

Amazing what a League average payroll can do for a team's fortunes...

Thank you to new ownership that made it all possible...

And one game closer to the end of Chuck Wang's disastrous reign...

Cheers, Islander fans!

Anytime you're doing things for the first time in franchise history for the isles and its positive, you know it's impressive.

@islesfan77 @gleichzal2 i honestly thought that was gonna be it.  philly didn't show much offense though, all night.  it's the way teams approach the new islanders.

@shamwow @mrcisback Your exactly right Shamwow. Its about time they spent some money and they spent it in the right areas. Maybe Snows hands were tied all along.

@tonelli27 Man Leddy and Boychuk are just relentless with there play on the ice. Remember Leddy is a young 23 year old who is only going to get better.

Maybe all Wang and Snow needed was the money from Barclays. It is amazing what a income stream can do.
