-Nabby seems on point and ready to go. I would very much like to not have any talk of that other guy starting the next game.
-Thought physical play was lacking (as usual). Watched a few times how we got outmuscled in the corner.
-As bad as I thought the defense was I think the offense might have been worse. They need to get more shots on net cause there is no way to score goals without them

I think overall that wasn't THAT bad. Obviously not what I'd like but I see the effort and drive there and it was something we can build off of.
None of that came across on TV. Other teams/sports broadcasts do a much better job of getting the sound of the crowd. But for whatever reason both the Mets & Islanders keep the crowd noise low.
