Tonight, our New York Islanders defeated the Stars by a score of 5-4. Here are some of my notes:
-I have will have an entry following this one on the Nino hit, briefly though I thought it was dirty and think it will be reviewed by Shannahan.
-Matt Moulson is the story tonight!! 4 goals in a game, wow he is crazy hot right now!! Five years to the day since an Islander got 4 goals in a game (Kozlov 12/3/06 vs the Rangers)
-Why does Marty Reasoner play over Haley?? Now with the injuries they'll both be in there, but before the injuries it didn't make sense to me. Capuano requests Haley be called up, he plays two games, does his and job and well then gets scratched for the subsequent games. It makes no sense to me!!
-Al Montoya saved us again in the third period especially in the final minute! He is simply amazing!!
-Rick Dipietro was injured in the second period today which is why Montoya had to come in. One has to wonder if this injury is severe enough to warrant a Bridegport callup.
-Congrats to Dylan Reese on his first goal of the season!!
-Even though he isn't scoring Tavares continues to put up points.
-Pa Parenteau is quietly having a solid season!!
-Travis Hamonic was huge in the final minute killing nearly ten second taking on three Stars players.
In the pre game I said that this game could go one of two ways. Either they could come out tired and put up a clunker or they could come out play another solid game and start to prove something. I don't know about you but I am very happy it was the latter.
Next Game: Tuesday @ Home 7PM VS the Lightning
