Tonight, our Islanders fell 3-2 to the Nashville Predators. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Offense needs to get it together, 35 shots in two games is unacceptable.
-Bad game from Nabokov, two softies from him is unacceptable! The first one was a typical Nabby soft goal that we have been accustomed to seeing from him in his time here.
-MacDonald had a weak game
-Nielsen is staying hot which is good!
-Good to see Capuano switch things up to try and get them going on offense.
-Special teams need work, time for Weight and Thompson to earn their paychecks.
-The effort level tonight clearly showed that we were on the backend of a back to back.
-The team needs to get back to the battle level they displayed at the end of last season.
-Tavares needs to stop with the blind passes! His tendency to do that is a microcosm of the entire team who tends to try for the pretty play instead of getting stuff to the net.
Overall, tonight was a bad loss for the team! They need to shake it off as they come home for a 4 game home stand next week and don't let this spiral out of control.
Next Game: Tuesday @ Home VS Buffalo
