Tavares Winner Helps Snap Isles Losing Streak

Last night, the Islanders snapped their three game losing streak by defeating the Oilers by a score of 3-2.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-Tavares had a great shot to beat Devan Dubnyk for the winner at the end of the second period.

-Great to see Donovan back in the lineup, I thought he had a solid game!

-Bouchard was alright in my opinion which is better then I thought he had been playing.  Still don't think he deserves to be in the lineup over Nelson though.

-Nabby wasn't bad last night, he still managed to give up his soft goal a game though.  This time it was Taylor Hall's second goal.  If he was able to cut that out he would do wonders for him.

-Pretty passing play to set up Okposo for the tying goal.  Okposo is already half way to his goal total from all of last season.

While it wasn't a perfect game, it was certainly better then the previous two efforts.  This was a game the team absolutely needed to win so it is encouraging that they did.  Hopefully they are able to build on this tomorrow vs Carolina.

Next Game: Tomorrow @ Home vs Carolina
