Isles Fall In Regular Season Finale 2-1

Tonight, our Islanders came out again with another lackluster effort and fell to the Sabres by a score of 2-1 in a shootout.  Here are some of my notes:

-Well, its been 3+ poor games from the team.  If this doesn't concern you I don't know what will.  The team got a point gift wrapped to them by Ryan Miller tonight otherwise they would've reserved a flight to Pittsburgh post game.  This isn't the way you want to head into the playoffs.

-I thought Tavares played better tonight because he was getting a lot of chances.  The guy can't seem to hit the net though.  He had six attempted shots today and only two hit the net.  He isn't the only one, its really a team wide thing but he is the most notable.

-After having a day off Nabby was pretty sharp tonight and gave the team a chance to win which is all you can ask from a goalie.

-Hickey had a pretty good game!  Was anyone else surprised when that Buffalo guy only got two minutes for high sticking hickey drawing blood then mugging him?


After last nights loss to the Flyers, people were calling this a must win game for seeding reasons.  Well, the Isles again failed to capitalize and now have to depend on teams this weekend to be victorious in order for them to avoid playing the Penguins in the first round.  Not the position the team wanted to be in, but when you turn in multiple poor games in a row those kind of things happen.

Next Game: Next Tues/Wed @ Washington/Boston/Montreal/or the Penguins
