This afternoon, we saw a common movie unfold at the Coliseum with the typical ending as the Islanders were defeated 5-3 by the Panthers after the Panthers scored 4 third period goals. Here are some of my notes:
-Great send off game for Vanek, showed us a bit of what well be missing with him as soon as Tuesday.
-Nilsson needs to work on his confidence, after that second goal by the Panthers you could tell something was unsettled with him.
-Good to see the team show some life after the lifeless loss to the Devils.
-It was nice to see Strome get on the board, hopefully he is kept in the first line role he was in today.
-Anders Lee has impressed me in his three games thus far since his call up.
Today's game was a common movie of Garth's rebuild with the blown third period lead. When will it stop? I don't know, what I do know is that it doesn't get any easier to watch.
Next Game Tuesday 8PM @ Winnipeg
