Tonight, our New York Islanders defeated the best team in the NHL the Minnesota Wild by a score of 2-1 in a shootout. Here are some of my notes:
-Isles played really really well tonight!!
-Large portion of the game they outplayed the best team in the NHL which is pretty impressive!!
-What the heck is wrong with Mark Streit?
-Backstrom stood on his head for Minny stoning the Isles on many good chances!!
-Tavares and Okposo both had solid games!!
-Hamonic and Amac is def the Isles number one d pair now. Mark Streit definitely isn't a top two defenseman anymore.
-Solid game by the fourth line!!
-The Bridgeport callups continue to play solid games!! They don't look out of place and are doing there jobs well!
-Day off helped Montoya!! He played really solid tonight!!
-Having Amac and Nino back made a difference!! This was one of the Isles best games in weeks!!
This afternoon I said that hopefully the roster upgrades will come in handy and it looks as though they did. This was a huge win as the Isles largely outplayed the best team in the NHL right now! Hopefully we can build on this vs the Jets
Next Game: Tuesday @ WPG 8:30 PM
