Do you think Komarov will ever sit a game this season?

So that is what a SO goal looks like.

Otto is looking good.

Win tonight and put Columbus back 8 lose and they are 4 away and the caps are pulling away with the division too.

Tonight really is a massive game. Will show what kind of resolve this team has.

We all kind of knew they were playing over their heads to an extent and that this is more like what we expected them to look like but I feel like they have strayed from what works. Let's hope they get back to that style with a day of practice

Yes and no. What I’m not seeing is the effort which has nothing to do with their talent level. There’s no back check, no second effort, neutral zone and defensive zone play is terrible. They look like a bunch of guys feeling sorry for themselves out there. Complete lack of effort.

They have absolutely strayed from their system. Question is, why? Since the Toronto game, they haven't been doing all the little things that have made them a good team this year. Is it laziness? coughbaileycough Coaching? (shields himself from bottles being thrown)
Regardless, i would assume that all the guys in that room know how big tonights game is.

Perhaps the Toronto game was their Stanley Cup. They blew their wad physically, mentally & emotionally that game. No, they haven't played the same since. Not sure what it's going to take to get them back to playing the system that made them successful.

Every game now is huge. If they take even a period off, they're done.

It's as if Crappy/Dougie have come back to the bench. They're out of position, chasing the puck and not applying any pressure/winning the foot races. Trotz better find the key to this or they'll be out of the playoffs sooner than expected. How shitty would it be for Columbus to back into the playoffs because the Isles played their way out of them?

The hardest part of watching this team right now is their problem is between the ears. Whether it’s laziness or self doubt I don’t know but every, single player on this team is capable of performing better and working way harder then they are. Extremely frustrating to watch while they just give away points.

OK, so just to be contrary, here is the opposing point of view....

It's less a matter of the Isles regressing, and more a matter of other teams' stepping up their play as they get into playoff mode. And the Islanders don't have another gear to shift into, because they were already playing as well as their talent (or lack thereof) allows.

I don't fully subscribe to this theory, but I do think there's something to it. I suspect the truth lies somewhere in between.
