Okposo Powers Isles Over Flyers In Shootout

This afternoon, our New York Islanders defeated the division rival Flyers by a score of 4-3 in a shootout.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-Great game from Okposo, he was on fire today!!

-For all the hate given to Andrew MacDonald which most is deserved, he saved the game today with that blocked shot in overtime.

-Carkner fared well in his fight with Rosehill in the first period.

-Bailey maybe struggling really bad but he somehow still puts up assists.

-Great game by Brock Nelson!  He has 5 goals in his last 8 games now, good to see him start settling in.

-Nilsson was so/so at best this afternoon but some of that can be attributed to not playing in any games in over two weeks.

-After getting dominated in the third on Saturday in Philly, it was good to see the Islanders give them a taste of their own medicine in the third period this afternoon.

After Saturdays loss, this game was key.  Going into the third it didn't look promising but like they have been doing for a little while now the Islanders found a way to get back in it and eventually get the win.  With this win they sit only five points behind Columbus for last playoff spot.

Next Game: Tomorrow Night @ MSG
