The Islanders will play much better tonight. That's for sure, but I don't know what that means.
Florida is a gritty team who works hard instead of being cute. Islanders are a little lost on the "work hard" concept, so if they play it cute, they lose.
Put this under the "I don't have a good feeling about this" category, and if we leave Florida 0-2, maybe it's time we start tempering our expectations with this hockey team.
The more I watch them play, the more I realize this is not much of an improved bunch, and if the Islanders were relying on simply more scoring from Grabner, etc... we are in huge trouble.
No time to panic, but leaving Florida with no points is laughable for a "playoff team". Period. So I don't see how that's an option for a "Playoff team".
Win the game, stand at 4-2, next 2 out of 3 at home, and I can live with that for a "Playoff team".
The idea is to not get too far behind the 8 ball.
