Tavares Late Goal Gives Isles 7th Straight Road Victory

Last night, our New York Islanders continued their dominance on the road with a 4-2 come from behind win against the Dallas Stars.  This victory marked the teams 7th straight road win which is something they hadn't done in 33 years.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-Calvin de Haan is fitting in better and better every day.  That was a really nice pass by him to set up Tavares for the winner.

-Radioman Chris King has fit in quite well with Butch Goring on TV in Howie/Jiggs absence.

-What can you say about Kyle Okposo?  We are just over half way through the season and he is approaching his career high in goals, assists and points.  He has turned up his play like we have been begging him to for a couple years and its really nice to be able to see it night in and night out.

-Yet another solid start by Kevin Poulin!  He has filled in just fine in Evgeni Nabokov's absence.

-Josh Bailey continues to disappoint out there.  I wonder how much more time they are going to give him in the top 6 before they give someone else a chance there.

Once again this team found a way to win after being down after 20 minutes.  I don't know what it is but this team seemingly can't lose right now.  If they can keep this up things will be very interesting heading into and coming out of the Olympic break.

Next Game: Tomorrow 7:30 @ The Panthers
