Tonight, our Islanders fell by a score of 4-0 to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Jackets seemed like a different team then the one that was at Nassau Coliseum a few short weeks ago. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-For his NHL debut I thought Scott Mayfield had a solid game. He really wasn't noticeable very often which for a defenseman especially a rookie that is usually a good thing.
-Not Nilsson's finest game after what had been a pretty good stretch for him.
-Offensive chances were few especially later on in the game which after the way we played them a couple weeks ago is discouraging.
-Carkner has gotten a lot better in his fights and actually made a good play on defense to break up an odd man rush tonight.
