    Obviously fortunate circumstances for the game last night but still a remarkably different team than under Lambert showed up to play.

    Another depressing loss to the Kraken. This team really needs to rebuild but Lou can't be the one doing the rebuilding. This Sunday is Rangers vs Islanders at MetLife. I hope the Isles can give a good effort even if they don't win which they probably won't.

    What a pathetic loss! This one tops them all in the last few seasons. Ouch

    You beat me to it - I just texted my daughter that this is one of the worst losses in years. This team is going nowhere this year, and the future is pretty bleak, too.

    Lou lamoriello has to be next, this is the team he has built. They suck and he is the only one who has control over this roster.

    And somewhere Lane Lambert was watching undisciplined hockey, stupid penalties, soft goaltending and the blown lead and feeling vindicated.

    22-18-14. 22 wins in 54 games. Thanks Lou. I will not get excited about this team until Lou is gone. The short-term future of this team is going to be painful. A lot of aging vets on bad contracts. Nobody in the farm system who can help out. We are at or near the cap. Even if the Isles make a good hire at GM after Lou is gone that GM will have a huge task rebuilding the franchise. It's going to take some time to recover from the damage Lou has done. We did get some good news. The ASG is coming to UBS in 2026.

    Another blown two-goal lead in the third period, but amazingly enough Islanders actually get the second OT point for only the 7th time in 21 games. Pelech with his first goal of the season to win it.
