Originally posted by Buffboy@Apr 1 2004, 09:34 AM Well, it looks like with that win, the Isles will manage to hang on and sneak in...you have to admit that you were a little nervous about the way my Sabres came barreling up behind you at the end.
I most certaintly was nervous....Up until last night, it appeared the Sabres wanted a whole lot more than the Islanders did.
The most encouraging thing for me to see(besides Steve Webb plaing like an animal) was the play of Michael Peca as of late. After a poor season he seems to be around the puck an awful lot...very opportunistic.
Over his career he has been a pretty clutch playoff performer (as I'm sure Buffboy can confirm). It would be nice to see him hit his stride now.
Playing hardball with Peca should have cost Darcy Regier his job. Peca is one of those players that you need to make things happen in the post-season. If he hits his stride down the stretch, watch him...he single-handedly can change a game with his effort.
I'm not in New York, so I rarely get to watch this team...do you guys feel there is a chance of them pulling the first round upset that Isles fans thought might happen after winning game 1 last year?

I think there's a better chance of them beating Tampa in the first than if they had to play Ottowa. They've matched up pretty well against Tampa.
I just hope Jason Blake gets back soon. Get well soon #55!
