Last night our Islanders fell 4-2 to the Rangers! Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Poor defense costed us in this one!
-On the first Ranger goal it was like nobody wanted to defend Dubinsky. He just went right through two people like it was nothing! That is unacceptable!!
-The second Ranger goal was blown coverage! No offensive player should ever be left alone in front off a faceoff, let alone a guy with the skill of Gaborik. Bad job by Grabner there losing his man!
-It was nice to finally get some powerplay goals in this game! However, I am still far from sold on it!
-Nice third period by Tim Wallace and Matt Martin trying to give the team some energy to get back in the game.
-I think Howie was rusty last night because he was screwing peoples names up left and right. He was taking a page from the book of Goring/Peter.
Well, this was a disappointing game to say the least! However lets hope the Isles can rebound with a big win tonight!
Next Game: Tonight @ Home VS Toronto
