It was a great game. Isles have to be the worst SO team by far though. Greiss and Lehner must love stopping breakaways in practice against these players.

It's like the word is out on the Isles' shooters... Most of the guys can't deke, so the goalies can safely come out far and cut down on the angle. And the few who CAN deke, can't snipe, so the goalie can just sit back and wait out his moves.

It DOES make me miss The Frans. EVERYONE in the arena knew that he was going to make his patented backhand move, and yet the goalie still couldn't stop it. The guy was literally worth 4 or 5 points in the standings each season.

Even homer Butchie was on the Isles about the SO. Most of these players would have trouble scoring on Berubé in a SO.

I just picture Randy Quaid coming out of the trailer in boots and a bath robe with a bunch of Meister Brau cans falling out behind him.

Yep the pp and SO are definitely not our strong points but I’ll take what we have right now. I’m more concerned with the pp they’ve got to do something with it.

PP is the much bigger concern. Bad PP can mean the difference of not moving on in the playoffs.

As he should be.

For the rest of his shenanigans last night, I think the NHL should call up John Scott and have him spear Kucherov in the nuts.

Never seen that side of him before. He was always a little chippy but he was Sean Averyish last night.

Oh he’s been quite trashy for a while now. I first started to notice around March of last year, and he REALLY escalated the female genitalia factor in the playoffs.

I was so disgusted with the islanders last season I couldn’t bring myself to watching the playoffs. Never seen him play like that before he was down right dirty last night quite a few times.

And whiny too. His public bitch fest when he started losing the scoring race (last season) was pretty indicative of his character.

Probably all stems from mad man Hickey’s destruction of Drouin.

Most likely because we thumped them the last time we played them and they got throttled by the pens their last game.
