Tonight, our Isles defeated the Red Wings by a score of 5-1. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Evgeni Nabakov played a fantastic game!! He made some unreal saves leading the team to the w!
-John Tavares is just getting better and better. That shot on the second goal was just awesome!!
-The first line in general is clicking on all cylinders! It seems like most every shift they have at least one good chance.
-The Grabner line played well to! Had some pretty good chances!
-Nice to have Grabner pot one finally!
-Can Matt Martin or Nino be given Rolstons top 6 spot? He is terrible and its embarrassing that hes a top 6 forward!
-The Islanders are 5-0-1 in their last six games versus the Red Wings. That is what probably prompted the "You cant Beat Us" chants toward the end of the third period by the fans.
Well, after the last two games which were well less then impressive to say the least this was certainly nice to see! Hopefully they can continue this play over the next few games because the schedule doesn't get any easier.
Next Game: Thursday @ Home VS the Flyers
