Last night, our Islanders fell 3-2 to the Dallas Stars. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Dallas wussied out by scratching Fistric for this game. They should've played him so he couldve answered for what he did. Hopefully he will get his, sooner rather then later.
-Refs were GOD AWFUL last night!!! I don't know how someone just didn't throw a freaking fit with the amount of soft and just plain bad calls that the refs made!!
-Were you as surprised as I was that they allowed the first Isles goal to stand? After seeing the replay I thought they were going to disallow it but was pleasantly surprised they didn't. They got lucky because they looked terrible in the first period so to come out with a tie was big.
-Poulin played pretty well! Outside of that third goal which I am sorry but he has to stop, he didn't play bad, and I was pleasantly surprised!
-Powerplay is atrocious!!
-If you didn't realize, Brian Rolston left the game last night with a concussion. So thats possibly Staios and now Rolston out with concussions. The only good thing about the powerplay last night was that Rolston was no longer on the point, because he is horrible there! One thing that made me cringe though was seeing Mike Mottau out there.
-Calvin De Haan didn't look bad in his NHL debut, if you didn't see, he and Poulin were both returned to Bridgeport today.
This wasn't an idea game by any stretch of the word, however the Isles didn't play horrible!! Hopefully they are able come back with a better showing tomorrow night!
Next Game: Tomorrow night 8PM @ Minny
