I don't really care about this loss, and am happy they got at least a point to maintain their 8-point lead on first place.

8 point lead!! I think some of you guys forget that.

And by the way, I'd be embarrassed to be an Islanders fan at the game last night. I was there, and the crowd was so overwhelmingly Ranger fans that the only 2 Islander fans in my section got booed out of their own arena and actually left when we tied the game.
Its not the fact that we have an 8 points lead or already have a playoff spot, its the problem that we are struggling with these bottom tier teams such as CBJ or Isles.
