This afternoon, our New York Islanders defeated the LA Kings by a score of 2-1 in overtime. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Nice ceremony before the game for Jonsson. I noticed that mentions of Garth and Wang weren't well received by everyone in attendance.
-Sweet moves by Streit to net the winner!!
-Nice game by Nabby!
-Refs were garbage!! They didn't call anything!! Seeing Cappy on top of the bench more then once was the most emotion I have ever seen him show in game, by far!!
-Penalty kill continues to roll!
-Did anyone get the logic in putting Rolston in the lineup over Rhett? I thought the line with Martin, Bailey, and Rhett had been playing really well. Saying I was surprised when I saw Rolston was in for him would be quite the understatement.
-Nice crowd today!! See what happens when your technically still in the race? Even though its a long shot, people still come out!! Hopefully they take hints!
Overall, this was a much better game then the Montreal game on Thursday. There was a lot less sloppy play and overall as a hole was a better effort. Hopefully they build on this for tomorrows game vs the Panthers.
Next Game: This afternoon 3PM VS The Panthers
