Tonight, our Islanders defeated the Hurricanes by a score of 4-3 in the final home opener at Nassau Coliseum. Here are some of my notes from the game:
-Good to see Bailey get on the board. Lets see if he puts up points in December and January when he is usually invisible.
-Brock Nelson keeps up his hot start with another two points.
-Like with Nelson, Tavares had another two points.
-Johnny Boychuk had another couple points which must be encouraging considering he wasn't a huge offensive guy with the Bruins.
These two games at the start were games we should win so winning them is encouraging especially against the Hurricanes, a team who has dominated us for a little while now.
Next Game: Tuesday @ MSG Vs The Rangers
