Tonight our New York Islanders continued their Florida road trip by traveling to Sunrise to take on the Panthers, and were downed by them 4-2. Here are some of my notes:
-This road trip has been an embarrassment!! Save the third period tonight the team has been just pitiful and embarrassing on this trip!!
-10 shots through 2 period tonight is just unacceptable and needs to change NOW!! Its become like a growing occurrence with this team save the Lightning game & the Ranger game at home. I am sorry but your not going to do much if you dont put the puck on net.
-If not for Mark Streit and Nabakov this team wouldve been shut out!! You can't blame this on Nabby because he really didnt have much of a team show up in front of him for a majority of the game.
-It was nice to see them finally wake up after the Panthers second goal however through the first two periods it was like the only offensive chances we were getting were on the powerplay. While its good that they got chances on the powerplay you need to get chances at even strength to otherwise you will not have very good odds of winning.
-Nabby has been sharp in his two starts this year which has surprised me. Coming in I was very nervous about him, but I am happy he has caused me to eat some crow so to speak.
Lets hope they leave this crappy play on the road with them has they come home this Tuesday.
Next Game: Tuesday 10/25 @ Home VS the Penguins
