Tonight, the Islanders were defeated for the second time in three days by their rivals the Rangers. Tonight it was in familiar fashion as the game was tied through two periods and a poor third period saw the Rangers score three goals including an empty net goal with 1 second remaining. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Second period tonight was a great period by the team! If only they were able to play every period like that.
-The team needs to shoot more, far to often do they pass up shooting opportunities making that extra pass and having nothing come out of it.
-Great game by Matt Donovan tonight
-Nabokov was alright, not great though. It'd be nice if he was able to stop a breakaway. I know it isn't easy but I believe I can think of one time between this year and last year that he has stopped one. It is like a forgone conclusion.
