Nielsens Shootout Winner Powers Isles Over Lightning

Last night, our Islanders rebounded off their tough loss Tuesday with a 2-1 shootout win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-Great game by Kevin Poulin!  While he has been pretty solid in Nabokov's absence it is still a small sample size and I think more needs to be shown before people start penciling him in as a number one goalie of the future.

-Thomas Vanek continues to score, he needs to be signed right now!!

-Good to see Nielsen convert in the shootout after struggling a bit this year.

After Tuesday's loss, this was a must win game and in typical Islanders come from behind fashion they found a way to win.  While Tuesday's game was very disappointing having the ability on a tough road trip to go 5-1 which the Islanders will do if they win Saturday is something that should be applauded.

Next Game: Saturday 7PM @ Philly
