Islanders Fall 4-2 To Hurricanes

Last night, in the teams lone pre season game at the Coliseum, the Islanders fell to the Hurricanes by a score of 4-2.  Here are some of my notes from the game:

-Halak had an up and down game, he made some nice saves including stoning a Hurricanes player on a breakaway.  However, he also let up a goal or two he would probably like to have back.

-I thought the Lee-Nelson-Strome line was one of the more consistent throughout the game.  Both Lee and Nelson appeared to have gotten stronger on the puck, meanwhile Strome seemed to have an extra jump in his step as well.

-Nice to see Cizikas get on the board with a short handed goal.

-Aaron Ness had a weak game, he showed why he will spend most of the season in Bridgeport.

-Newcomer TJ Brennan really didn't stick out to much for me.  For a guy who is supposed to be an offensive specialist, I felt he struggled at times with some simple things.

-Nice showing by Matt Martin in his fight at the end of the second period.  He was victorious in a landslide.
