At least he mixed the first line tonight....but he just did not let it develop. Tavares, Zeeker, and Mcdonald looked good with their brief time together.
I'll gladly take this point and run.
i like chance of catching Devils more than Rangers.
agree, slim chance
five teams trying for two spots and Isles have one game less than the rest. we need a Pittsburgh win tonight. figures horseface scores the winning goal in Olympics but isn't around when we finally need him
Agree that Devils are looking like they can be the odd man out... But if the Islanders keep taking of business, it won't matter what everyone else is doing.
If they could somehow be at least tied with the Rags going into Tuesday night, I would be real happy. All starts with the Rags losing tonight (wake the fuk up Pitt) and the Isles taking care of business on Saturday. Isles/Rags at the Coliseum a week from Saturday could be one of the biggest games in this rivalry since the 94' playoffs (Was at game 4 in the first round. Almost crashed on the Meadowbrook screaming at Rags fans who had the audacity to bring a broom to the Coliseum.)
Its crazy how evenly matched spots 7-13 are in the East. Besides Florida and perhaps Buffalo (and even Buffalo is decent), every team is a playoff caliber team that simply had some bumps in the road at points.
i don't think the Isles would be in this mess if Viz came over when he was supposed to. he's been a real addition.
Les go Isles! Beat Tampa! Gotta play a solid game. Tampa's got weapons.
Sorry, been drinkin. I'll prolly be out by 9! LOLz
What a strange way too finally break up the top line...a Moulson scratch. So far nice plays by Grabs and it sure is nice with no Reasoner.
JJ looking alright for his debut so far but Amac needs too go. I don't know how much more I can take of him....but the reality is that he is gonna be here for awhile.:steamin:
Isles came out flat in the second, just like they used to do with a lead in the third.
Big 2 pts. tonight.
Great game. Grit. Playing the best hockey of the season lately. Hope they keep,it up.
Gotta play 60 minutes. Maybe it finally sunk in.
Yes!! Big Win!!
Rags lose tonight in Toronto and they are tied up with the same # of games played. I think they have the tie breaker one way or another, but that can change by the end of the season, I think.
If the Devils keep sucking and the Isles take care of Philly, that is two huge steps closer.
