Tonight, our New York Islanders defeated the Carolina Hurricanes by a score of 4-3. Here are some of my notes:
-Nice game by JT!! #1 star in all four games versus them, wow!! Pretty sweet goal going coast to coast through the defenseman to.
-This is the first time in 32 years that the Islanders have swept the season series from the Hurricanes/Whalers.
-Pretty good game by Poulin!! None of the goals were really bad goals. Some unfortunate, but not much you can do about that.
-Nice game by Nino, only a matter a time before he gets promoted to the third line.
-Good game by Matt Martin!! Good for him showing fight til the buzzer and going after the Hurricane when they shot after the buzzer.
-Not to be mean to Marty Reasoner, but outside of faceoffs I am pretty sure the scrum he was in, in the first period was the most hes done all season.
-Nice seeing Okposo get back on the board!
Overall, not the perfect game but still a rather solid one. With the win we moved back within 6 points of the last playoff spot. Now in order for this win to mean something, we need to win Monday to. We cant keep going back and forth with the wins and loses like this because we will never get anywhere then. This is the 9th game in row where we've won, lost, won and so on. That must change if they want to push!
Next Game: Monday 1PM @ Home VS Ottawa (Konopka Returns)
