Last night, our New York Islanders fell to the Blackhawks by a score of 5-4 in a shootout. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Outside of the second period this was a very good game!!
-The second period was awful, the team got ridiculously outplayed and its fair to say that with a better second period that we would've gotten the extra point in this one.
-The third period however, might've been the best third period I have seen this team play throughout the course of this rebuild. They simply dominated them from start to finish coming just two shots away from setting a franchise record for shots in a period.
-You know this game is something when the powerplay actually plays well!!!
-40 shots on goal must be a season high, it was really nice to see the team actually SHOOT!!!
-Al Montoya is a beast!! Simple as that!!
-Great shot by Nino on the tying goal!! Hopefully this gets him started!!
Overall, minus the second period this was a very good game from the team!! Hopefully the play continues tonight, should be interesting to see if the team is any different since I expect DP to be in net.
Next Game: Tonight 8:30PM @ Dallas
