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
