Tonight, after putting forth a solid 40 minute effort our Islanders fell 6-2 to the defending cup champion Boston Bruins. Here are some of my notes:
-Nabby was a little bit shaky tonight. That first goal he gave up would've been covered in my opinion. Although the last two goals weren't really his fault because of awful defense I think Cappy made the right move pulling him.
-Al Montoya played well tonight and showed why he should be the number one. Sure there were a few goals scored in the third period including one empty net, but the only reason the game was competitive in the third was because of Montoya.
-Defense for some of the first and some of the third was just abysmal at best. Seriously, so much missed coverage and mis communication. Certainly not what I was expecting after Saturdays win.
-Martin picked a good spot to fight in the first period, and it served its purpose. You could see that he worked on his fighting. As he ended up getting the slight victory over McQuaid. Martin refining the aspects of his game.
-Tavares made a really nice pass to Grabner for the 2nd goal of the game and Moulson had a real nice tip for the first goal.
-Can someone please wake up Okposo and remind him the season started??
Hopefully this stops here and doesn't come on the road with us because if it does were in trouble.
Next Game: Thursday 9PM @ Colorado
