Game 1: Loss to the Devils - Devils are off to a great start, they have not lost in regulation yet and the Islanders made it a close game only losing 2 to 1.
Game 2: Win against Tampa Bay - The Lightning have also started off well, they are 4-1, their only loss to the Islanders
Game 3: Win against Toronto - Impressive come from behind win, scoring 5 unanswered goals.
Game 4: Loss to the Bruins - Another great team to start off the year, Boston is 4-0-1 and have not lost in regulation yet. Islanders were tied going to the third period.
Game 5: OT Loss to Winnipeg - Islanders did not play well, yet they were tied at the end of regulation. Winnipeg also off to a solid 3-1-1 start with some impressive wins.
Game 6: WIN?
To me the Islanders have started off better then most have expected. If you look at their record it's middle of the pack. But as I look at it game-by-game I am very pleased with their start. Most importantly, knock on wood, they have been in every game so far.
"but it's not like we're getting killed out there every night" said Charles Wang. LOL sorry had to. But I also feel the team has been competitive, I just feel they have talent but need to learn how to win. A good veteran FA could help with that- HMMmmmm...
