    Isles play at Ottawa today but a weird start time. Game starts at 5:30

    1 goal on a 5 on 3 then 4 min PK is a win.

    Nice win last night over the Sens. 9-2 in their last 11 and 11-6 overall. Not bad at all.

    Good win but the sloppy penalty taking was horrendous. There has to be a happy medium between the old scheme and new scheme.

    They went from a defense first scheme to an offensive style and the defense is struggling for now, hopefully as season goes along the defensive end of the scheme tightens up.

    This is a good team but, damn, they just have games where they are asleep. The good thing is we have the cap space and assets to finally make some trades.

    Sorokin with a 49-save shutout over Edmonton - third-most ever in a shutout in team history.

    honest question: do the islanders play in a renovated penitentiary?

    The Islanders played a tough game against Philadelphia. Walstrohm gave Deangelo a run for his money, Deangelo thought kid was going to go down easy but Ollie stood his ground and earned his NHL stripes.

    Good win vs Tortorella coached team.

    15-8 30 points. Isles are quietly having a good year. Damn Devils won't lose though. Only a handful of teams have 30 or more points right now and the Isles are one of them.

    That’s due to the new scheme, Lambert knows his defense is deep and talented. I believe the Islanders have the most points contributed from defense in NHL.

    I like that they make an effort to always put puck on net instead of trying to wait for perfect opportunity under like they did under Trotz.

    We can also look at goals for and goals against, this year they are in the plus category, they were never in that position under Trotz.

    Let’s hope this translates to a deep playoff run as well, Bruins and Devils are on fire!
