Post Game: Isles Fall 2-1 to the Devils

Tonight, to open the season, our Islanders once again lost the home opener.  This time by a score of 2-1 to the Devils.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-10 shots through 2 periods?  That is a terrible job by the offense, you cant beat a goalie if you don't shoot on him.

-Finley over Radek on defense?  It doesn't matter if Cappy/Thompson/Weight wanted big bodies.  That was an absolutely brutal move, Finley looked terrible tonight.

-Could someone please explain scratching Casey to play Reasoner?  Reasoner is a guy who brought 0 to the team last year and yet a rebuilding team scratched a 23 year old center to play him tonight.

-Nabokov was sharp and gave the Islanders a chance to win.

-Nice goal by Hamonic

-Great, great crowd tonight!!  They were into before they even stepped into the arena which is always good.

- Tavares didn't look like he had missed a step which is encouraging.

Overall, on the back-end it wasn't a bad start.  However, for the forwards, back to the drawing board because tonight wasn't good!

Next Game: Monday @ 1:00PM vs the Lightning
